A dry-bodied (unglazed) black basalt teapot of oblong form. There are moulded ribs above the foot and gadroons around the lower body, with rope-twist beading around upper middle body. The shoulder has Georgian stars inter-spaced between crowns which have three feathers emanating from them.

There is a further rope-twist bead around the flared rim. The pierced lid has similar stars and feathers but additionally has four larger crowns which lack the feathers. The lid is gadrooned and has a flower finial.

Moulded handle with simple acanthus moulding at top. Plain spout has internal domed strainer. Flat shallow recessed base without any marks.

No exact match has been found in the literature but a similar example (but with a ribbed neck) is shown in ‘An Anthology of British Teapots’ (1985) by Miller & Berthoud, p.234, pl.1399 which is un-attributed.

Presumed to be a commemorative relating to King George IV’s coronation in 1820.
