Davenport Transferware Chrysanthemum Floral Spray Teapot Black Antique c 1860

A Davenport matt black ground transfer printed, hand coloured and gilded pottery teapot. This nice quality antique decorative earthenware "melon" shaped tea pot is decorated with hand coloured flowers, the primary ones look like peonies however, the Transfer-ware Collectors club have an assigned name of "Chrysanthemum Floral Spray". There is a small printed stylised butterfly to the front of the spout. It is hand coloured in poly-chrome enamels with gilding to the rim, lid finial and spout rim. This small or bachelor size teapot dates to the mid 19th century during the reign of Queen Victoria circa 1860.

This teapot is unmarked apart from the remnants of a pattern number or painters mark on the base. It is a design well documented as being that of Davenport of Longport, Staffordshire, England.
