This item is a ceramic handpainted teapot by The Haldon Group. It is dated 1986 and is their Blue Bird pattern. The teakettle is painted in majolica style with a pretty soft ecru background decorated with hand painted green vines with light pink flowers encircling the teapot. The arch handle is painted to look like a twisted twig. The lid to the teapot is a cute Blue Bird sitting on her nest. This piece is in excellent condition. It is marked on the bottom with "The Haldon Group 1986". It does have some green felt tiny pieces glued to the rim of the base to protect the furniture it was displayed on. These can be seen in the photos.
