Here is a very sculptural and extravagant teapot--with a serpent head spout, an eagle head handle and a flower head finial. This teapot is six and a quarter inches to the top of the handle and was produced by John Rose at his factory on the canal in Coalport. Interestingly, he has done quite a precise copy of the “Dollar Pattern” of Josiah Spode. This teapot is attributed to Rose on the basis of Berthoud’s Anthology, plate 2247, which shows a smaller teapot in the same shape. It is a wonderfully vibrant and alive piece with a strong Imari pattern that won’t quit. Based on the smaller than usual size, some experts have concluded that this shape of teapot was intended for a tea service for two. There is some damage. The tips of the ears and the jaws of the spout have been repaired, and there is a one and a half inch hairline crack from the rim on one side. Obvious gilding wear in spots.

A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
