This gorgeous Regency Period Bloor Derby Teapot and Stand dates c1815. It is rare to find a teapot and matching stand of this period. The set is hand painted with red and orange grape leaves and much gilding. There is no wear to the decoration. The teapot is about 11-1/2" from spout tip to handle, and 5-5/8" high. The stand measures 7-3/8" x 5-7/8".
All 3 pieces are in excellent condition, and perfectly usable. There are no repairs. All 3 pieces ring when tapped. The only flaw I see is a small hairline at the top end of the spout, which does NOT go through to the bottom of the spout.
The mark is Godden's #1253. He states that in red the dates are 1800-1825.
The teapot shape can be seen in Berthoud & Maskell's "Directory of British Teapots", page 218, plate 1306. They describe it as "Bloor Derby, c1815, porcelain, crossed batons mark in red, on four bun feet, mock rivets and insulators in the handle."
