This Penny Start, sale Is For:
AN ANTIQUE NEO-CLASSICAL INSPIRED BLACK BASALT TEAPOT with FIGURAL LID... in GREAT ESTATE CONDITION!
Decorated in a neo-classical style. It's topped with a wonderfully detailed resting female form (mourning maiden) surrounded by a ring of acanthus leaves. The acanthus motif repeats with large acanthus leaves on the handle. Bands of intertwined vines create figure eight patterns above and below the all over pervasive entrelac pattern - punctuated with floral blossoms.
We acquired this along with several other basalt pieces. All the other pieces are signed: CREIL. However, this piece is unsigned. I'm uncertain of the maker. Perhaps it's Wedgwood's Jasperware or an unsigned piece of Creil... There were a couple other makers in the Yorkshire area of England around 1790-1820... it might be one of those shops. The mourning widow atop the lid leads me to believe it's Wedgwood. If you know the maker, please drop me a note. For my personal edification only.
MEASUREMENTS: It's a large piece that measures 11" across and 6" high. For basalt tableware pieces, that's pretty large.
CONDITION: It should be noted that all the decorative elements are detailed and very crisp. There are no chips or cracks on the pot. On the underside of the lid only, there are a couple very minor small chips. They're on the flange that seats inside the pot so unremarkable and quite expected after 190 years. (see photos please)
As previously mentioned, we acquired this piece along with several rare Creil basalt pieces. There are two impressive tea pots, a covered sugar basin (sugar bowl) and 3 cups and saucers - all signed: CREIL. See photos below and on our other sales...
