Scottish Pearlware Brushstroke Mochaware Miniature Teapot

Wisteria & Grapes

Scotland or Staffordshire c 1810

This striking miniature children's teapot was originally part of an early child's miniature tea set. The little cannon ball shaped teapot stands 4 inches tall to the top of the ball finials. Its measures 5 1/2" long. It is hand decorated with high temperature enamel colors of cobalt blue and olive green slip, slip decorated hand painted decoration on creamy earthenware, finished with pearlware glaze. A stunning and whimsical example of late 18th and early 19th century folk art.

The piece was mostly like made in Scotland though it may possible hail from Staffordshire in England. Typically it is unmarked. One of the earliest wares intended for children to play with, used to instruct them in proper table manners or for a playtime tea party or simply to decorate a dollhouse table.

The tiny teapot is in great condition with no chips cracks or repairs. Two small gouges on the side of the spout, original to the making. Delightfully whimsical, a wonderful early miniature slip decorated, naïve motif in mochaware style, perfect to add to any collection.
