A very rare Staffordshire white salt-glazed stoneware teapot. Slip cast moulded quatre-foil lobed body with shells, leaves and acorns decoration. It stands on three feet which are moulded as shells rather than the more usual mask and paw type feet.

The handle is the early hand-rolled coil type with a simple kick-up. There are moulded bands of dots, flowers (or shells?) and Greek fretwork around the foot and neck. The spout has shell and scroll moulding.

Made in Staffordshire c.1745-1755, these moulded white salt-glaze teapots are earlier than the enamelled versions and are very rare outside of major museums.

I could not find any published examples of an exact match but the following books had similar examples:

“Creamware and Other English Pottery at Temple Newsam House Leeds” (1976) P. Walton, p.40, pl.106, shows exact match apart from spout, c.1750.

“The Illustrated Guide to Staffordshire Salt-glazed Stoneware” (1971) A. R. Mountford, pl.178, similar body and handle but no feet and different spout, with enamels.

“White Salt-Glazed Stoneware of the British Isles” (2005) D. Edwards & R. Hampson, p.124, col. pl.94, shows same teapot as above.

Pot ID:

AP/1245

Date:

c.1745-1755

Dimensions:

115 mm high to top of rim. 157 mm incl. lid.

Weight (grams):

185

Lid is a modern resin replacement. There is a lozenge shaped piece of the body missing and filled on the reverse with associated breaks. Small section of rim is over-painted and probably restored. Spout has been off and re-glued, spout lip restored. Short hairline from rim near handle (but handle has not been off). The damage was hidden with extremely tough paint which has now been removed but some traces still remain. Please study the photos for full condition assessment.

Despite the damage this stunning and rare teapot still displays extremely well. It has been priced to reflect the condition (it would cost over £2000 in better condition).
