Offered is a staffordshire pearlware dark blue transfer printed teapot that would date from the 1820's. This dark style of transfer decoration was popular in early federal America and this was probably made for the American market. Pictured is a typical romantic scene of a figure near thatched buildings, water and a bridge with a floral border throughout. The print, while not as sharp as many, has a soothing visual appeal.
Dimensions: the height with cover on is 7" and the length from handle to spout is 10 1/2". The width is 4 3/4".
Condition: Good. there are no chips or cracks, just three stained lines (two are crow's foot) to the interior only as shown. The color is good and bright and the glaze is smooth and unworn. The tip of the spout may or may not have a small spot of touch up but it is very hard to see, although I have taken a photo of it. The cover and finial are in good order.
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.
