It is always fun to find one of my pieces illustrated in a reference book. A photo of this teapot is shown on page 192 in " A Directory of
British Teapots" by Berthoud and Maskell. They date it c 1825. It was made by Gerrard, Cope, Gerrard of Lane End, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. This is their pattern number 47; the same as in the photographed piece.
The porcelain teapot is in excellent condition. There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing and no repairs. Both pieces ring when tapped. It is 10-1/2" long and 5-3/4" high.
