Here is a delightful and self-assured eighteenth-century porcelain teapot decorated with oval medallions containing mythological scenes of cherubs. The medallions are flanked by gilt Roman trophies suspended from ribbons. The shape is a standard one, often seen at Hochst, and bringing to mind the shapes of Sevres teapots. The gray ground color is slightly mottled, and there is gilt everywhere: on the spout, the handle, the finial and surrounding the medallions. Condition is quite good. The flower finial has some small chips and the lid wobbles a bit but it fits. There is a small chip to the inner flange of the lid and one to the footrim (shown). Slight surface wear. It stands just under five inches tall. It is marked with the Hochst factory’s spoked wheel and incised initials.
