An 18th century Worcester porcelain teapot and cover, hand painted with a Mandarin pattern c1775-80.
The teapot measures 18.5cm in diameter including the handle and spout and stands 14.8cm tall with the cover in place.
It is in excellent condition without chips (except for minor chips o the flower finial) or restoration. There is a fine hairline crack to the cover. This is mostly hidden by the pattern and was caused by a firing crack.
