Offered is an English New Hall teapot in boat shaped form dating from about 1795 to 1805 according to Holgate's reference, New Hall. The body is of a hard paste porcelain and the decoration is floral in pattern number 594. This is one of several forms used by this factory including the well known silver shape. A sought after pattern.
Dimensions: length from handle to spout is about 10" and width is 5 1/4". Height to top of handle is 5 1/4"and height to top of finial is about 5 3/4".
Condition: Very good. There is a small nick to the inside rim of the base that the cover sits on as shown and a couple of small nicks to the lid also as shown. There is a spot of kiln dust from when it was fired near the handle as shown which is common for New Hall porcelain from this period. Other wise, there are no chips or cracks and no restoration. The decoration is unworn and the glaze is smooth.
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.
