Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this most unusual and elaborate Ironstone Teapot.
It was likely made in East Liverpool, Ohio, probably by the Cartwright Brothers. Their pieces are typically in Yellow Ware. See Lisa A. McAllister, Collector's Guide to Yellow Ware, Book III, p 61.
Dating around 1880, this beauty has a Round Form, Embosed Florals, and a Metal and Wooden Handle. The embossing is deep and carved in appearance. The florals on the pot are repeated on the lid. Creamy and shiny white glaze. Measures 6 1/2' wide and 5" tall.
Excellent Condition. The base is as made. Some surface craze lines. The lid has small chips on the underside at the edge, two of which show on the edge (last photo). Otherwise as made.
