In the 18th century, circa 1765, the Worcester factory decorated this delightful First Period Dr. Wall Worcester teapot in the ‘Mansfield’ pattern, a loose floral design painted in underglaze cobalt blue. The shape of the teapot is a simple sphere with a molded loop handle and a well-balanced pouring spout. The pretty cover of the teapot is also painted with cobalt blue. It is beautifully finished with a delightful flower finial. The flower has a stem from which we see two raised molded leaves. The shoulder of the teapot, the rim of the cover, and the elegantly shaped spout all have blue decorative borders. The Mansfield pattern was one of Worcester’s most popular early patterns.
Dimensions: 7.5″ long x 4.5″ at the widest point x 6″ tall to the top of the finial
Condition: The teapot and cover are in excellent condition with no cracks or restoration. The edges of the flower finial have faint, tiny burn marks from when the glaze slipped off the top edge in the making of the cover. The minor imperfections are tiny chips to the inside of the cover (shown in image #11).
Mario Buatta Collection FBB Worcester Pattern 4 Hand-Painted Cups & Saucers$2,230.00
We called this “Mario’s Pattern.” It is a fabulous pattern with unexpected color combinations, which Mario Buatta collected for decades.
Whenever our shop, Bardith, found pieces of this pattern, we would contact Mario.
He would come into the shop, and we would show him what we had acquired in the pattern.
As often as not, Mario would announce, “That’s not my pattern! ”
But it was, and he would purchase whatever pieces we had.
This set of four hand-painted cups and saucers was made by Flight Barr and Barr Worcester circa 1820.
Because he loved this pattern, we’ve added this set to the Mario Buatta Collection, even though it was from a New England collection and not Mario’s estate.
When we purchased this set, we also purchased a set of three cups and saucers in another pattern that Mario often bought from Bardith.
Dimensions: diameter of saucers 5″ height of cups 2.5″.

Because Mario loved this pattern, we are adding this set of three cups and saucers to the Mario Buatta Collection, although they came from a New England collection and not Mario’s estate.
