This is a French Limoges coffee or teapot. The date is the 19th century, circa 1875.

The pot is 9 ¼” high to the top of the finial and 9 ½” wide from spout-to-handle.

The bottom of the pot is a basket weave mold. The handle and finial are designed like twigs, with gold trim accents to showcase the appearance of wood. There are wide gold bands around the lid and upper body, gold trim under the spout and thin lines of gold accent around the spout and lower body.

There is wear to the gold trim, just a bit, but more on the spout as you can see in one photo, so please look carefully.

The tab on the underside of the lid, the part that holds the lid in place under the rim, has a broken tip, which is very common for pots this old. There are no other chips, nicks, cracks or crazing. There are two small marks of discoloration on the glaze on the front of the pot.

The inside of the pot has drilled holes at the entrance to the spout for filtering tea leaves or coffee grounds.

The pot is glazed white and with the gold trim will match just about any fine china dinnerware set.

The marks on the bottom are impressed in the mold. There is a R over a M and in another place the word Depose. The word depose translates roughly to made in France.
