Description
teapot with mismatched lid, porcelain, soapstone body, teapot globular shaped, with the Narcissus pattern to central front and reverse, floral motifs scattered around the central pattern and on the spout, Crowfoot border below the rim and above the foot of the teapot. A matched lid with flower or rose finial and double lined rim, printed with a floral pattern in a brighter blue. The lid is possibly of a later date than the teapot, ie. post 1780, into the William Davis or early Flight period of Worcester, when the prints were very detailed and well engraved, but the tone of blue brighter than early periods. Decorated in the Chantilly French style. Worcester blue and white. Glazed pulled back. Crescent shaped mark. Lid is printed, pot painted
