This will be one of your favorite pieces of Jewel Tea China. The whimsical shape invites relaxation and imagination while you drink your tea, perfectly brewed with the aid of the original interior infuser. There are at least two variations and this one is known as the "long spout" model because of the elongated stretch to the spout. It also has the wide body, very, very cool. The condition is excellent with most of the gold intact, estimated at 90-95% as pictured. However there is a small inner rim chip as pictured that is not visible unless you look for it. We have adjusted the price accordingly. Hall's china is best known for its affiliation with tea and tea companies. It made many teapots and tried to educate Americans on the proper methods of brewing tea. One of the most popular affiliations was with Jewel Tea Company- a door-to-door tea sales business. In the 1920's Jewel Tea used Hall's teapots as customer premiums...most notably Autumn Leaf. Serving you for over 30 years, we work hard to find unique antiques and heirlooms at reasonable prices.
