A "Bachelor" Teapot is a rather uncommon form. It's an individual size pot holding about 1 cup of tea. This one by Wedgwood is very charming, with its hand painted floral motif and pink (almost purple) lustre trim.
Although the shape, with its "London Handle" and the lustre trim suggests the 1820's, this pot was made in 1936 and has the date mark to prove it. It has a clever double catch which holds the lid on tight.
The teapot is about 4-1/4" high and about 7" long. It is in very good condition, with a small filled-in chip at the mouth being its only fault. Both lid and teapot ring when tapped.
WEDGWOOD is impressed on the base, along with a "36" date mark, and the pattern number A5467/2. I currently have the companion cup and saucer for sale in my shop.
