Wallendorf Thuringia Puce Scenic Tea Pot 18th Century
HOLD HISTORY IN YOUR OWN HAND! When Washington was crossing the Delaware, Franklin was courting France and Adams well he was being JOHN! This lovely teapot was gracing someone's table who's? Well we can only dream. A treasure in its own right
This porcelain tea pot was made by Wallendorf of Germany in the late 18th century. The pot is hand painted in a monochromatic scenic motif. In the 18th century this color was referred to as puce (A purplish pink) . The style is hand painted en grisaille which is a single color painted reminiscent of sculpture. The body of the pot is molded; it has the ribbed design to the paste which is very common in the Thuringia area makers. The handle is serpentine reminiscent of leaves and the lid is dainty with a round knob. Perfect for Farmhouse Décor or on a Farm Hutch or Welsh Dresser
MARKS The pot is marked underneath with a blue W that looks more like two V's. Mark was used between 1764 and 1787. The age can be narrowed down to the period when Thuringia makers were creating this puce scenic style, around 1780. For more information see web page Porcelain Marks & More or email me for links.
