The lovely Lady Alexander Rose pattern of this Bone China Teapot may bear the marks of either Bell China or Queen Anne as both were trade names of Shore & Coggins when Thomas C. Wild & Sons was the parent company. A 1-1/8 inch wide continuous ring of large rose blossoms in realistic shades of dusty pink to deep burgundy rose encircles the rim. Each blossom is highlighted with green leaves and a glimpse of a stem, with wispy pale blue foliage as accents. A pair of matching sprays of two rose blossoms is also on the cover, which has a tab that fits inside and secures the lid in place. The scalloped rim, foot, and cover are trimmed with gold, and the fancy handle and spout are also gold decorated.
This beautiful teapot is 4-3/4 inches tall, 5-3/4 to the top of the handle. The cover and finial reach almost to the top of the handle. It is approximately 6-inches in diameter and 9-inches across the spout and handle.
It is stamped with a color miniature of the pink rose motif followed by “Fine Bone BELL China, England" in green. The pattern name, “Lady Alexander Rose” is arched above the miniature rose. A trio of small pink dots accompanies the back stamp.
Bell China was an earlier trade name used circa 1936 to 1949.
Like the matching luncheon plates, there is a shallow 1/16th-inch spot along the side of the handle that dips in like a small nick under the gold which is still intact. Other than expected shelf wear on the underside of the foot, there are no other condition issues.
