Antique Brown Betty English Teapot c1910 Blue Cream Gold Silver Gibson Burslem
This gorgeous, antique, Brown Betty teapot was produced at the tail end of the Victorian era circa 1910 by Gibson and Son Potteries. It is marked on the base G & S Ltd, Albany & Harvey Potteries Burslem. This mark was used from 1909 onwards, but in 1912 they began adding a registration number so I believe this piece dates to that early period.
The teapot is made of a dark brown pottery, which makes the best British cuppa. It is decorated with a deep cobalt blue, and a band of cream. There is a gold decoration atop the cream with lattice and cross patterns. The spout, handle, nob and rim are decorated in slightly worn silver.
This piece measures 5 1/4" in diameter, not including the spout and handle, and 4 1/2" in height. I believe this would hold 2 - 3 cups of tea with out modern cup sizes.
In excellent condition it has no chips, nicks or cracks at all. There is some light crazing to the glaze, and as mentioned above a little wear to the silver decoration.
