This early teapot bears the label of Guimont Montague, a New York City dealer from the olden days. The ceramic body is brown stoneware, and it has been decorated with very fragile enameling that often has worn away entirely on this kind of piece. Several chips testify to its antique status, and there are repairs to the tip of the spout, a lid chip, the bird’s beak and the side of one of the three feet. Also, a crack goes across the bottom and partway up both sides. Obvious damage, but it is very unusual to find this type of teapot with such extensive and well-preserved decoration. Jackfield was one source of these dark-colored pottery wares, so the name is applied haphazardly to anything of this type. In fact, many Staffordshire potters made similar wares.
