This is a French Haviland & Co Limoges hard paste porcelain teapot or coffee pot in extraordinarily good condition for its age. The date is circa 1865.

Typically, in Limoges dinner wear, if the spout has any type of swoop to it, it is a teapot. A straight spout is a coffee pot. The spout at the top is a chocolate pot or syrup jug, depending upon the size. But the pot can be what the owner wants it to be. This pot does have a built-in strainer for tea leaves (or coffee grounds.)

The teapot is 8 ¾” high to the top of the finial and 8 ¼” wide from the spout-to-handle.

The glaze is white with a gold wedding band trim.

The blank is called the cable shape as you can see on the finial and the handles.

There is only a tiny bit of gold wear on the handle. There is no other gold wear. The tab on the underside of the lid is still intact. There are no chips, nicks, cracks or crazing. There are some ash flecks in the interior glaze and a dark line in the glaze on the interior side.

The mark on the bottom is incised, near the edge, H & Co. There is a faint impressed registry mark. There are a few other incised squiggles.
