This pretty hand-painted teapot looks great from a distance of about 3 feet away. I am offering it for the advanced collector who wants an example of this fairly recently discovered Staffordshire porcelain maker.

The teapot shape may be found in Geoffrey Godden's "Staffordshire Porcelain" book on page 265, plate 405. The Hilditch article is written by Peter Helm. Mr. Helm describes what he calls this "Hilditch Group B" teapot, at some length, and points out the differences between this teapot and a look-alike made by Ridgway.

I'm sure you are interested in hearing about the condition.
The good news: no chips, no repairs, no wear to the gilding or enameled flowers. The spout, handle, and finial are intact. The lid is in perfect condition. The bad news is: MANY hairline cracks. There are several cracks on the shoulder of the teapot. There is a crack where the handle joins the body. There are cracks on the lower part of the spout. There are cracks to the lower body.

I have not "doctored" the photographs. Despite all of its problems, the teapot displays amazingly well. It is 10-1/2" long and 6-1/4" high. The pattern number 781 is written on the base. This teapot dates c. 1830.
