First Period Worcester Teapot Painted Underglaze Blue Mansfield Pattern c-1765

$1,220.00

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).
