(p1065)

A handsome oval 'new fluted' design teapot, cover and stand form the Coalport factory, c1810. This delightful teapot and stand are elegantly decorated in rich honey coloured gilding. This decoration comprises a wide border made from interlinking ellipses with three dots in the centre of each of the ellipses. This creates a very fine and elegant design. This is embellished further with the magnificent gilded 'garter' stars, one on either side of the teapots body, cover and centre of the teapot stand.

This beautiful teapot does have some damage that I feel should be pointed out straight away. There is a fine three way hairline crack to one side of the teapots body as well as a minor hairline to the tip of the spout. However, I feel that this teapot is still in a reasonable condition and displays well as a beautiful example from the famous Coalport factory.  There are more details in the condition report at the base of the page.

The teapot, cover and stand are moulded with vertical flutes, this known as the 'new fluted' shape.

The elegant teapot, oval in shape, has a  circular spout with the base portion fluted and gilded. The loop handle has an inward spur, this a typical feature of Coalport handles at this period. The finial to the cover also has the typical Coalport shape, fluted on top and underneath and is gilded on the top half.

The decoration of the teapot and cover comprises a wide border made from interlinking ellipses with three dots in the centre of each of the ellipses. This creates a very fine and elegant design, very much in the Regency taste. This is embellished further with the magnificent gilded 'garter' stars, one on either side of the teapots body and cover.

There is also a line of gilt foliage around the shoulder of the teapot. There is quite a bit of wear to some areas of the gilding to one side of the teapot and cover, but in my opinion does not detract too much from the beauty of the piece.

The gilt 'garter' shaped stars are again in the very rich honey coloured gilding and shine out beautifully.

The elegant spout is  fluted to the first half portion, this then embellished with gilt foliate lines.

 

The tip of the spout is also gilded.

The loop handle is decorated with gilt foliage down the top surface. there are two manufacturing firing cracks as can be seen in the condition report below.

 

There are internal straining holes to the spout. There are no manufacturer's marks on the teapot.

The body of the teapot cover is fluted and decorated in the same fashion as the teapot.

The charming oval fluted and gilded finial of the lid is typical of the shape used by Coalport.

The oval stand to the teapot, is again fluted round the raised rim, this decorated the same as the teapot and cover with the wide gilt border design. A rich gilded  'garter' star adorns the centre of the stand around which is an oval gilded line.

Although this teapot does have a bit of damage, in my opinion, it is a fine example to anyone who collects Coalport porcelain, or early English tea wares. As a cabinet example, it will display extremely well

This is most elegant Coalport teapot and stand that would make a fine display item for the collector of Coalport porcelain. It dates from c1810 and is richly decorated with very fine gilt decoration.

Size and Weight: (values are approximate)

  • 7" (178mm) height of the teapot to the tip of the cover finial.
  • 10" (250mm) length from the tip of the spout to the back edge of the handle.
  • 6" X 5" (155mm X 127mm) length  X width of the teapot stand.
  • 1lb 12oz (800gms) total weight of teapot, cover and teapot stand.

Marks:

There are no manufacturer's marks on the teapot, cover or stand, but is from the English Coalport factory and dates from c1810.

Condition:

This is a very fine teapot and stand. It will make a fine display piece, but does have some damage.

The teapot itself has a fine, but tight hairline crack to one side. This fine crack is three way and does go through to the inside of the teapot. I have shown the extremities in the pictures below. Despite this crack, the body seems to be quite firm and strong still.

There is also a tiny hairline crack to the tip of the spout, also shown below, this is certainly nothing serious.

Not damage, but manufacturing firing faults, there are two tiny splits in the makeup of the handle. These are shown below. Again, this is nothing for concern, just as it was manufactured.

Finally, there is some wear to the gilt decoration, particularly to the wide band of decoration to one side of the teapot and cover, this obviously occurring from it being wiped over the years. again, this, in my opinion does not affect it too much if you would like a Coalport teapot for displaying. a little wear can also be seen on the stand, but this is much more minor.

Although this teapot does have a bit of damage, in my opinion, it is a fine example to anyone who collects Coalport porcelain, or early English tea wares. As a cabinet example, it will display extremely well
