Early 19th Century KPM porcelain teapot.
This teapot was made at the Royal Porcelain Factory in Berlin, known as KPM, circa 1810 - 1820.
Beautifully painted on each side with highly detailed flower sprays, in puce enamel. The squared handle has one floral end and one that looks like a classical downspout. The cover is decorated with three different floral sprays, and the knop has a flower plus two fine lines and one thicker one. The cover rim is gilt. The bottom has the early KPM Berlin sceptre mark.
The condition is excellent. The only very tiny flaws I can find are a bit of wear to the gilt on the spout rim, and some slight roughness to the tip of the spout.
The teapot measures about 9 1/2" long x 6 1/2" tall.
