Staffordshire ~seashells & Flowers ~ Dark Blue Transferware Teapot C1830 Nr:
Historical Staffordshire Pearlware Dark Blue Transferware Teapot & Lid circa 1830
~ Sea Shells and Flowers Pattern ~ Unknown Potter ~
About 7" high to top of finial ~ Almost 12" long from spout to handle
An early large Staffordshire pearlware teapot with a rich dense transferware print of many seashells and flowers, the two rim edged with a fine lacy border. The handle is molded as two overlapping leaves with beading toward the bottom and the finial to the lid is a sort of square floral shape as well. It displays beautifully although there are a couple tiny chips, it has a big lovely presence.
In excellent condition with a glossy glaze; there are no touch ups or restoration. There are two small chips under the spout and one at the footrim on the corner by the handle seen above. The finial has never been off and there are some small chips under the lid and the inside flange but these are hidden when sitting on the teapot. The base has a few cracks and some staining. All these faults are shown in the photos but I think you will find on display these are all negligible for a beautiful antique piece.
