A small (6 ½” high) English Creamware Coffee Pot w/ strap handle, flower terminals, a rosebud finial and fluted spout! The little gem measures about 6 ½” tall and the handle to spout distance is about 5 ½”; diameter of the base is about 2 ¾”. The is nice detail on the terminals for the handle, and the same for the rosebud finial. No maker’s mark, but it could well be Leeds, c. 1780-1800; a comparison of the spout, handle and floral terminals with those pictured in the Donald Towner book point to the pot being made by the Leeds Factory.
This little coffee pot is in very fine condition, especially considering its age and fragility. There are no chips or cracks, only a faint hairline in the lid from the finial to the edge and a filled chip in the spout. Nice and clean, with a strong glaze. Taller creamware coffee pots from this period come up from time to time, but you do not see too many of these small or miniature ones. A little gem!
