This teapot belies its traditional name of drabware with a vibrant presence, almost a celebration of vining grapes. Now, you may ask why a teapot would feature grape vines instead of tea plants. To that I have no answer, but the English manufacturers were always looking for new and interesting ways to decorate teapots, and they came up with this. It stands five and a half inches high and the color of the pot is in the clay, not in a glaze. Highlights have been added in dark blue and luster. The shape is very characteristic of the period around 1820. The knob on the top has been reglued almost invisibly and there is a hairline from the edge of the lid (shown). Otherwise it is in great shape with only slight surface wear.
