A very unusual pattern, and even less common is to see teaware as a matched pot and trivet set! Unmarked but very old, as according to the original owner they were purchased new in England in the early 1900's.
The main body color is soft yellow, shading to a warm dusky orange sunburst on the edges, ornamented with small purple flowers (sorry, we're not botanists!) and green leafage in transparent hues. Pot and lid are edged in gold, the trivet bordered with tiny gold fleur-de-lis and scrollwork.
The pot has embossed beaded designs at its pie-crust top rim, spout mouth, and just above the slightly scalloped base. The lid has similar beading around its perimeter, as well as a scalloped and mushroom-shaped top-knot. The trivet has a softly scrolled edge contour and a raised embossed design inside the border.
Condition is excellent on the pot, the trivet has quite a bit of scuffing through the colors where the pot sits, as shown in the photos.
