On offer is a pretty staffordshire pearlware teapot in great condition dating from the 1820's. The decoration consists of a band of alternating flower and leaf pattern with pink lustre trim and fine vine and leaf borders. This is more finely decorated than most pink lustre wares. It is fairly large, and as expected, there is a bluish tint to the pearlware glaze. A beautiful display piece.
Dimensions: Height to the top of the finial is 7" and the length from spout to handle is 11 1/4".
Condition: Very good. There are no chips or cracks. There is what appears to be a slight, hardly seen repair under the tip of the spout as shown, otherwise no repairs. The glaze is smooth and unworn with a slight amount of fine crazing in some areas only on close inspection. The enamel is good and the lustre is great with virtually no wear anywhere including the top rim, the handle and the finial. For accuracy, there is a tiny, hardly visable nick to the inside pouring guard which can just about be seen in the top 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.
