Here is an incredible Wedgwood black basalt teapot with classical bas-relief work around the body of the teapot. The lid has bas-relief work around the edge. The outside has an unglazed matte finish but the inside is glazed and shiny. Wedgwood started producing stoneware black basalts in 1768. The teapot is marked on the bottom with the name WEDGWOOD in caps and the number 18 incised. Wedgwood in caps was used from 1759 on although other marks were sometimes used. From 1891, England was used along with the name. From 1860 a three letter code was used for the date. Therefore, this teapot can be dated from 1759 to 1859. The classical motif is beautifully detailed. The dimensions are: approximately 9" from handle to spout, 5" tall and 6" diameter. A great find for the collector of Wedgwood, teapots, or any ceramic lover.
