Large and rare, this is an antique, heavy, flat-lid Jasperware teapot made by Wedgwood. It has an impressed Wedgwood mark without the word England, which dates it to before 1900. It is decorated with Greek sacrifice figures, including the goddess Diana and "Sacrifice to Cupid". The tea pot is 10 inches from handle to spout and about 5.75 inches tall to the top of the finial.
This teapot is unusually heavy with the unwrapped weight being more than three pounds. Due to its weight, it should only be used as a display piece since the filled weight might make it too heavy to comfortably use for serving, as well as putting extreme stress on the handle.
It is in outstanding antique condition. The tip of the spout has a few very small chips and an insignificant firing line and the finial has firing stress lines that happened during the manufacturing process (last two pictures). There are small spots where the blue color skipped, some can be seen in the photos.
