Offered is an excellent English porcelain teapot possibly made in a hybrid hard paste body with a silver resist banding decoration. The shape would be the version of the new oval form by the factory of manufacture. Some aspects such as the base and knop suggest the Machin factory although I have been unable to find an exact match in Thom and Miller's book, Machin. It would date to around 1810. Appearance and condition of this large teapot are great.
Dimensions: Length is 10 3/4", height with lid is 6 1/4", to top of handle is 6", and without lid is 5 1/4". Width is 5".
Condition: Excellent. There are no cracks or chips and there is no restoration. The lustre is great with very slight wear to just the rim and spout tip. The glaze is smooth, shiny, and unworn. There is just a hint of discoloration below the handle that is so light I was unable to photograph it in the last photo.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing flaw or repair. While this is normal and to be expected, I note any known issues in the condition description.
