This wonderful miniature child’s teapot was produced in England during the early 19th century, the Georgian period of circa 1805. The blue and white transfer printed Chinoiserie pattern is known at the ‘Curling Palm’ and features pagodas, bridges and Chinese figures. The pattern was used by a number of manufactures of the period, including the Ridgway factory. The teapot was produced as part of a child’s tea service, making its survival even more impressive. We love the pearlware glaze and the tiny little spout.
This miniature teapot is a rare piece; miniature pieces in this pattern are desirable for blue and white collectors. Please see our rare collection of miniature pieces.
Measuring: Width 4 5/8 inch (11.5 cm) by height 2.75 inch (6.5 cm). Depth 2.5 inch (6.5 cm).
Condition: Sadly missing its lid. The teapot is in very good condition considering its vast age, with only a small chip to top and bottom of the handle.
