Here is a Derby teapot from about 1785-95, with one of the most graceful and interesting shapes of any teapot made at Derby, in my opinion. The oval cylindrical body in the neoclassical taste has a straight spout and a rococo shaped handle. This is pattern 530, marked on the bottom in puce. Simple gilt banding of leaves. A little gilt wear, and the only damage is a tiny sliver on the very tip of the spout and another one on the side of the spout, on the inside. As you can see in the close-up, hardly noticeable. The finial is fine and shows no wear. Splendid condition overall. It stands five and three-quarters inches high and ten and a quarter inches at its longest.
