This gorgeous antique Derby Teapot and Stand dates c1815. The set is hand painted with red and orange grape leaves and much gilding. 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 teapot is 5-5/8" high. The stand measures 7-3/8" x 5-7/8".
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 "...porcelain, crossed batons mark in red, on four bun feet, mock rivets and insulators in the handle."
