James Sadler Ltd. operated from Burslem - one of the Staffordshire potteries - from 1882 until 2000 when Churchill China took over production of some of Sadler's items.
Sadlers were famed for both their 'Brown Betty' and 1930s Racing Car teapots. They also made a wide range of domestic ceramic wares.
Here we have a pretty Teapot decorated to both sides with sprigs of deep yellow roses and leaves on an ivory ground all on a gently fluted body.
Richly gilded to rims, spout, handle and lid. Minor rubbing.
The shape of the handle confirms its 30s date.
Some clean age-related crazing mentioned for completeness. Small, old smooth flake to base rim.
Approximate dimensions : 6.5" / 16.5cm to top of finial 8.75" / 22cm from spout to handle
Backstamps include impressed Maker's Mark, Gilder's mark and pattern number.
A delightful piece which will make a beautiful addition to any teapot collection, or the start of one perhaps ?
All our items are pre-owned and vintage and may therefore show signs of use and age and will not be dishwasher proof.
