John Rose had been an apprentice to Thomas Turner at the Caughley factory until aged 21 when he set up his own manufacturing company with Edward Blakeway at Jackfields around 1793. By 1796 they had set up a works across the other side of the River Severn at Coalport, from where this delightful teapot originated.

The main body of the oval teapot is of a moulded vertical curved flute design. These flutes also continue on the cover.

 

All gilding on this teapot is very fine and of a rich honey colour that is very bright. There is a wide band of gilded ellipses which are interlinked with additional gilded dots between two thick gilded bands, this applied around the shoulder of the teapot and round the rim of the cover.

 

The rim  of the teapot and cover are gilded.

 

The gilding to the half moulded spout includes stylised foliage on either side of the spout and to the top and front portion of the spout, etc.

 

The tip of the spout has a thick gilded line around it.

 

There is an open loop handle to the teapot, this has a gilt line to both sides and to the back edge. There is an inward pointing spur to the lower portion of the handle.

 

The oval cover has the same very fine gilt decoration as the teapot and has an oval fluted finial which is gilded to the top portion.

   

This is a striking Coalport 'John Rose' New fluted Oval Gilt Teapot, 'Interlinked Ellipses and Dot' Gilt Decoration, c1798.
