Here is a teapot with what is called a prow shape, decorated in brilliant colors of orange and gilt. The Worcester factory was justly proud of its orange color at this period. It shows up quite often and was imitated by other factories. I believe this teapot was once part of a solitaire set for serving tea to one person. It is just under eight inches long overall, but the height is smaller than usual. There is a reglued chip to the finial (shown) but otherwise it is bright and lustrous, with no damage and hardly any wear. The lid, which is original, does sit a bit wobbly, but that seems to be its only notable fault.


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.
