This attractive teapot and stand was made by Davenport of Longport, Staffordshire between 1830-1850. It is hand painted with cobalt blue grape leaves, touches of yellow, and lots of gilding.

The teapot is about 10" long and 9-1/4" high. The teapot stand is 8-1/2" handle to handle.

The teapot is in very good condition. There are no chips, cracks, or crazing, but there is a discreet repair to the top of the spout. The teapot stand is in excellent condition with only slight wear to the interior gilt circle. Otherwise, there are no chips, no cracks, no crazing and no repairs. All 3 pieces (lid, teapot, and stand) ring when tapped.

Three similar Davenport teapots with the bifurcate handle, and the same finial can be seen on page 299 of "A Directory of British Teapots" by Berthoud & Maskell. They are dated 1830-35.

According to Geoffrey Godden, the brown mark on both pieces should date pre-1830, because after 1830 the mark used was blue. Despite all this, the pattern number of 2556 would seem to indicate c.1850, according to John Twitchett, writing the Davenport chapter for "Staffordshire Porcelain".

Both teapot and stand are marked with Godden's #1191 in brown, and the pattern number 2556 hand painted in red.
