If you know Charlie O'Neal, tell him you know where his teapot is! At least, if he's the esteemed Mr. O'Neal who was honored in 1829 by the United Tanners Association in Warrington. They must have regarded Mr. O'Neal highly in presenting him with this rare and handsome teapot. Both sides have the coat of arms of the association, along with bold and colorful decoration of flower bouquets and leaves. Fiery red accents on the spout and lid also give this teapot an appealing look. Dated teapots are fairly rare, and presentation teapots very rare, so this unusual teapot is certainly one of a kind. Even if you're not named O'Neal, this would make a stunning impression on a shelf in your home. Made in the Staffordshire district by one of the many factories located there, in the heart of the ceramics industry in England, it stands six and a half inches high and about eleven and a half inches end to end. Condition is quite good. On the teapot there has been a small repair to the end of the spout, along with wear to the luster glazing, and you will perhaps make out a faint hairline through the coat of arms on one side (pictured) and under the spout. The lid has a reattached finial (repaired chip), with two repainted chips on the edge. Bold and authoritative colors throughout. Exceptional decorative appeal.
