Here is a rare and early teapot by the eminent Coalport factory, a piece created within the first ten years of this important factory’s existence. It is unmarked and has no pattern number, and the shape is remarkably similar to the teapot shapes of other factories of the period—especially to the teapots made by Thomas Rose, John’s brother. However, several small details help to identify this as one of John’s products. The polychrome decoration is simple, very much in the style of the Chinese Export porcelains that were being imported into England at the time and were major competition for native products. The main group of flowers seems to be an attempt to copy oriental ones, without a grasp of what the oriental flowers actually looked like. It is ten and a half Inches long with light normal surface wear from use, and is in excellent shape except for a spider crack on the underside and a nearly invisible glaze spider from a bump on one side. A small chip is on the underside of the lid, invisible when the lid is in place.
