The Orient was a mysterious and fascinating place to the British in the 18th century, and the decorative style known as chinoiseries developed in response. This teapot from the first period of the factory illustrates that fascination perfectly. Chinese family members are gathered around a table having tea and perhaps getting ready for a meal. The teapot is five and a half inches high. Condition is very good. There are a few of the normal tiny chips to the petals of the flowered finial. The spout experienced a split during the firing in the kiln, as shown. The underside of the tip of the spout has several very tiny chips from use, as shown. The colored decoration was worn at the widest point, probably from bumping up against something else. This surface wear has been touched up with new color so that the design is complete.
