This pretty bone china teapot is as bright and clean as if it were made yesterday. One reason for that may be that it developed a heat crack early in its "life", and was just too attractive to toss...
Although marked only with the pattern number 2/3569, that is a Ridgway pattern number; it has the distinctive Ridgway oval domed strainer; and this Ridgway shape can be found on page 327 of Miller & Berthoud's "An Anthology of British Teapots". Guaranteed to be by Ridgway, and to date c 1830.
I'm calling the condition "very good". There are no chips, no crazing, and no repairs. The handle is perfect, the lid and flower finial are perfect, and the tip of the spout is perfect. And yet, there is that pesky crack which goes right through the lower half of the spout from right to left. The teapot display well. Please study the photos.
