A blue-bodied stoneware teapot with a thin vapour / smear glaze. Moulded as ‘crabstock’ with oak leaves and acorns. The spout, handle and lid also follow the crabstock theme.

The spout has a simple internal hand-pierced 13 hole strainer in a roughly circular formation.

The base has a moulded diamond registration mark which gives a date for 1846 (or possibly 1875? - the letters are not too clear). There are also impressed numbers ‘4’ plus ‘24’.

An exact matching jug is shown in ‘A Collector’s Guide to Nineteenth-Century Jugs’, by Kathy Hughes, (1991), p.22, pl.55, which is described as “Ridgway & Abington, 1846”. Godden (2000), p.533 says “Ridgway & Abington, Church Works, Hanley, Staffordshire c.1835-1860 - formerly W. Ridgway, Son & Co.”.
