A stunning and rare figural owl teapot with a treacleware (Rockingham type) glaze over a white body. The lid or head functioning as a cup. The body and lid are slip-cast, whilst the wings, tail, and beak are all press-moulded and added to the body. Plain ‘rolled’ handle and moulded hexagonal spout. Glazed all over with the exception of the lower rim edge of the lid.

The flat base has impressed mark ‘MINTON’ and an apparent year mark, however the year mark does not appear to match any of the Minton year marks. The MINTON mark was used from c.1862-1871 with an ‘S’ being added from 1871.

The design is inspired by the extremely rare white salt-glazed owl teapots, which were produced in Staffordshire in the C18th. This attractive Minton teapot manages to capture much of the vigour of the early examples without being a slavish copy. Other equally rare examples are known with a yellow glaze.

Pot ID:

AP/856

Date:

c.1862-1871

Dimensions:

160 mm high (to top of head - highest point).

Weight (grams):

457

Almost perfect. There is a small glaze chip on edge of the base below the tail. For accuracy it is noted that an internal lid may once have existed - but is not present in this example.
