This Asian style developed in England in the 18th century and reflected an interest in the exotic East. Based on the sketches of artists and the memories of tourists who visited the Orient, Chinoiseries was a raging fad for a time, and still is popular, but the designs today are more authentic. The British misunderstandings of oriental motifs add to the charm of these pieces. The maker of this teapot is unknown, and the print was used by several factories, including Harley. (Harley’s print was slightly different, though.) The prints were fired on the surface first, and the colors were added by hand and the piece fired again. The teapot is ten inches long and has some roughness on the edges but no chips and no damage other than one small repaired chip on the top rim. Excellent condition!
