Lindgard is a British Pottery know for its novelty teapots. Here is one that is about as “novel” as you get: a teapot in the shape of a World War I Tank. It dates c. 1920, or perhaps a few years earlier, and shows a white pottery body in the shape of a tank. There is a head poking out of the top, machine guns mounted on the side and silver resist highlights. The face looks to be a classic WWI Doughboy. And the tank is marked “Made in England” on the bottom.
The tank measures about 8 ½” from handle to spout, is 3 7/8” wide and 6 ½” high. Overall good condition: there is some staining inside and on the bottom, and a thin hairline around the bottom of the handle, but no major damage or issues. This piece is not my usual offering, but it was so funky, I could not pass it up.
