The smoker’s valet was a relatively common pattern at the Pennington porcelain factory in Liverpool, and this unmarked teapot was almost certainly made there. Very colorful, with no loss to the decoration and hardly a scratch after 250 years. Condition is great. Two flaws are probably original to the piece. The lid has one very small chip on the rim, glazed over and smooth, and next to it is a separation or crack, also probably done in the firing. Check the photos to see these. The only other damage is a tiny chip on the footrim. Colors are bright with no wear and no chips to the enamels. Spout is fine. Finial is fine. Handle is fine. A wonderful specimen in extraordinary condition.
