English Teapot, Orange Bat Print, Antique Staffordshire c 1820

This attractive early 19th C earthenware teapot with rising cape is shown on page 140, plates 837 & 838 of "A Directory of British Teapots" by Berthoud & Maskell. They date it c.1824, and mention the "mock rivets" of the handle. The shape is identical, but different bat prints were used on this teapot.

Four different bat prints were used. 1.) A manor house with a couple and 3 sheep in the foreground. 2.) A 3-arched bridge with a castle and village in the background. 3.) On the top, a Georgian manor house. 4.) Also on the top, possibly a chateau.

The teapot is 5-3/4" high, and about 11" long.

The condition is only fair. The good news: the handle, spout, and finial are all intact and undamaged. The bad news: there is a crack which runs along most of the bottom of the teapot. There are a few chips, with the most obvious being on the edge of the shoulder. There is some staining, and some surface nicks to the orange enamel trim.

Despite the flaws, it displays quite well, as the photos show.

The authors of the book were not able to identify the maker of the teapot. It is unmarked. They suggest a Staffordshire pottery. I am curious about how they came up with such a specific date as 1824...
