This lovely teapot is in very good condition. It was made by the New Hall Porcelain Works of Shelton, Hanley, Staffordshire. The body is hard-paste porcelain. Height 6-1/4", Width 9-1/4", base is 5-3/4" x 4-3/4".
The New Hall pattern number 449 is painted in red enamel on the base. Examples of this pattern may be seen in 2 color plates in Huttons's "A Guide to New Hall Porcelain Patterns". She also gives a detailed description of this pattern.
According to David Holgate in his book "New Hall", the last of the "silver-shape" teapots was made about 1803.
There are no chips, no crazing, and no repairs. The single flaw is a tight hair-line crack which is under the spout and extends to both sides. Please see the last photo.
