This is a white porcelain teapot (no lid) and its accompanying stand, made at Worcester during the "Barr" period. Border and center have a grape and leaf design in deep brown (with purple cast), with tendrils and bands of gilt. Stand marked with incised "B" (mark used 1792-1804), along with painted number "7"; teapot unmarked. Berthoud shows same shape and pattern in A Directory of British Teapots, plate 603
Size: Teapot approximately 10.25" long; stand approximately 6.5" long, 5" wide.
Condition: Teapot missing lid, metal repair to spout end. Some gray discoloration on one side of body (possibly during firing). Tray has some wear to gilding. No other chips, cracks or repairs.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, I would expect a return if I happen to miss anything.
