This is an English porcelain teapot. The pot shows a backmark that is too worn to determine a maker. The date is 19th century, circa 1889.

The pot is about 6” high to the top of the handle. It is about 7 ¾” from spout-to-end.

The blank or mold is quite beautiful. The fixed handle, spout and finial are shaped and colored like pieces of wood, complete with the knots and burls, and colored in shapes of brown. The result is a look of old hickory sticks. The body of the pot and the lid have raised grassy leaves and yellow blossoms on long brown stems, with the design being part of the mold and then colored. The bottom half of the pot is ridged.

There is some slight wear to the enamel color of the design due to age and wear. There is some mild crazing under the glaze. There is a tight age line on the rim of the pot that I show clearly in the photos. The tab on the lid, the part that inserts under the mouth of the rim to provide stability to the lid, has a break on the end. There are no other chips or cracks.

You can view a similar cup and saucer made by E.J.D. Bodley in the book “David Battie’s Guide to Understanding 19th & 20th Century British Porcelain” on page 212. The company manufactured porcelain and earthenwares between the years of 1875 and 1992.

The underside of the lid and the bottom of the pot show the remains of an English Registry mark in red. The mark reads Rd No 131431, and it is the number for the year 1889.
