Vintage Pumpkin-shaped Tea Pot Unusual Pastel Colors:
This is a vintage, and very sweet pumpkin-shaped, single-serving tea pot. It is unusual in that it is made in China and painted in pastel blue and pink tones. In my research, I have not found anythingsimilar. This one is in very good shape with no cracking or crazing. There is one small divot on the bottom as shown in the last photo.
It has a "Cinderella Pumpkin" shape, and it's lid is shaped like the lid to a Jack-O-Lantern. It is glazed on the outside and unglazed on the inside. It is creamy white, painted with pink blossoms and blue twining vine patterns. There is a geometric blue pattern on the bottom rim accenting the blue rib lines that run down the pot. The handle part of the lid is a pale green, like the stem of a pumpkin. Handle to base, and the body including the spout are 5 1/2" high and wide. The painted patterns appear to have faded a little in areas. I think this adds to its soft appeal. All in all, it is lovely and appealing as a display, collector's item, or a new favorite tea pot.
