This attractive Silver Lustre Teapot has a belly, spout and lid decorated with gadroon molding. The finial is a flower. I date it c. 1820.

Actually, this type of ware should be called platinum lustre, as the silvery effect was due to the use of platinum salts for the glaze. The fancy glaze usually covered a simple brown earthenware body.

The teapot is about 9-1/2" long, and 5-3/4" high.

The teapot is in good condition. There is wear to the lustre on one side of the teapot's oval foot, so you can see the brown body. There are 2 small chips to the spout. There is wear to the lustre on the flower finial, and 2 chips to the top of the lid. Both pieces are solid, and ring when tapped.

Like most early silver lustre, it is not marked.
