Here is an early 19th-century teapot that imitates the shape of one of the silver teapots of the day. It has a lid that is attached with a metal hinge pin, and is identical to the teapot shown in Berthoud’s book on teapots, plate 874 (where he leaves it unattributed as to the maker). It displays as perfect, but part of the interior flange supporting the lid has been repaired, along with one end of the lid’s hinge that surrounds the original pin. There is a tiny repaired chip on the edge of the spout. There might also be a small repaired chip on the upper rim.
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.
