A late 19th century child’s Aesthetic Transfer, 5-sided teapot with an overall brown floral sheet pattern. In addition to flowers and paisley-type decorations there are also leaves and moths in the decorative pattern. Very pleasing shape and attractive decoration. The little teapot, which was probably part of a child’s tea set or perhaps set of dishes, is about 3” high to the top of the finial on the lid and about 4 ¾” from handle to spout. The pot has tapered sides and the distance across is about 3” at the bottom, 2 3/8” at the top. Excellent condition with no chips, cracks, lines or restorations. No maker’s marks.
The teapot is in excellent condition: pleasing color and crisp brown transfer. There are no chips, cracks, lines or restorations, and the teapot is not stained or crazed. A great piece for your child’s or miniature teapot collection.
