A dry-bodied (unglazed) black basalt teapot of oblong form with gadroon type moulding around the lid, shoulder, lower body and spout. The neck has moulded grapevine decoration. The central body has moulded strawberry plants. The handle is ‘ear’ shaped with acanthus leaf moulding at top and lower section with flutes between.

Recessed base without any marks. Spout has an internal domed strainer. The lid is pierced and has a flower head finial.

This teapot is shown in the Leeds Pottery Pattern Book. Many factories produced virtually identical designs (including Riley etc.) but this example is probably Leeds.
