A Mason's porcelain miniature teapot decorated in a "clobbered" style in underglaze blue, enamels and gilt. It is unmarked.

An identical shaped teapot sold at Christies was described as 1840-5 although I always thought these were earlier. It measures 3 3/8inches (8.5cms) from tips of spout and handle.

There is some wear to the gilding and some small losses to the enamel.
