A very small earthenware teapot with a treacleware brown glaze (a.k.a. Rockingham glazed). Probably a child’s toy or possibly a bachelor size teapot. The upper body is decorated with a moulded flowers design which is repeated four times. The spout and handle are plain. The lid has an hexagonal faceted finial and is not pierced. Hand pierced four hole internal spout strainer. Glazed all over including base. The body appears to be thrown moulded (i.e. jigger / jolly) in two parts which are joined around the middle.
British origin, possibly Scottish, made c.1860-1885.
The final photo shows a similar sucrier which is not included in this sale but is available separately.
