Vintage Shawnee Pottery “granny Ann” Teapot:
This figural teapot is a product of the Shawnee Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The company began operations in 1937 and was named after the local Indian tribe. Shawnee’s pottery was sold by five and dime stores across the country until the company went out of business in 1961. This two-piece teapot stands approximately 8 ½” in height (incl. lid), 8 ¼” in length (incl. handle and spout) and 5 ½” in width. It is marked on the base with an incised “USA”. According to the company’s catalog this piece is referred to as the, “Granny Ann”, teapot and features a granny wearing a floral bonnet, blue-trimmed cape and a peach-colored apron. The lid is fitted with a tab, or flange, that prevents it from falling out. Despite a couple of chips on the interior of the rim of the lid and some manufacturing flaws (including red marks on the handle), this vintage Shawnee Pottery teapot is in very good condition with no other chips, cracks, crazing or any other evidence of damage.
