STAG

Charles Allerton & Sons 
Staffordshire, England c. 1880

This transferware children's teapot, circa 1880, was originally part of a child's tea service. The little flat pear shaped teapot stands about 5 1/2" tall with an applied handle and finial. It is transfer printed in a rich sepia or chocolate brown.   
The teapot (some say it’s a coffee pot) features a noble stag or deer or reindeer basking in the moonlight in a meadow surrounded by mountains. This beautiful scene is framed by an aesthetic background of branches, fern, scrolls, a sailboat and a smattering of geometrical whimsies that repeat on each side of the jug.
The teapot was made by Charles Allerton & Sons, a 19th century pottery manufacturer in the Staffordshire region of England well known for his whimsical children's teasets. The pattern is known as "Stag". It is unmarked. Some pieces found in this same design are marked with the pattern name and pattern number 750 inside a belt-shaped cartouche.  

The teapot is in great condition with no chips cracks or repairs. The lid is a bit small but they all were in this shape.  Intentionally haphazard in manufacture, not fine china and not intended to be, with minor imperfections, original to the making and adding to the authenticity and the quirky charm.  Overall crazing, consistent with age.
Sepia or brown aesthetic transferware depicting wild animals is hard to find and highly sought after, and cherished by nature and animal lovers! This antique toy teapot will make a stunning addition to any collection of Aesthetic movement dishes.
