Gorgeous LAVENDER transferware ironstone footed teapot… A rare piece to be sure! Lavender transferware is very hard to find. So when I came across this piece, I was absolutely thrilled! The only discernible mark on the bottom is a capital letter “T”. There is a large amount of crazing, a small row of chips on the inside rim (happened moons ago) and the lid a small hairline underneath only and some of the paint has worn away on the flower of the lid. But, let’s face it, she is from the 1900s….if not before. So she is allowed to show a few blemishes.
The transfer pattern is mostly florals with a tiny farm scene, a few birds and a bit of fruit growing on wire fencing. It’s stunning.
She measures 7”H x 11”W x 4”D.
I love how there is some lavender paint splatters on the spout and under the top rim!
