Here is a very special teapot with a soft-toned decoration of flower bouquets and swags of flowering vines interlacing with a puce ribbon around the rim and the lid. Furstenberg was one of the finer porcelain factories in what is today Germany, but is less well known than Meissen, Ludwigsburg and Frankenthal. I also have a matching cup and saucer—the remnants of what must have been a very attractive tea service in its day. Condition is very good, with no damage to the body of the pot except a small unseen chip on the supporting flange for the lid. The lid has a noticeable hairline (at about six o’clock in the photo of the lid), with gilt touchup where it meets the edge, and a repaired chip on the flange underneath. There is also a tiny colored-in chip to one of the petals of the finial. Very minor damage for a teapot that is in other respects near perfect, with barely any wear to the decoration. It stands four and a half inches high. Besides the F factory mark, there is an impressed letter N in the bottom as well as the number four in underglaze blue.
