Little Old Lady Teapot English Figural Old Grandmother In Cape 1940s Large 32 Ounce
This is a wonderful vintage Little Old Lady or Grandmother teapot that was made in England in the 1940s and is all hand painted.
The wonderful teapot, which is known under both names of Old Lady and Grandmother, has a lovely molded head finial and depicts a long dress with a cape and an umbrella.
The character teapot was made by several potteries including Wood and Price Kensington, and not all have maker's marks, although all, like this one, have the impressed Made In England mark.
Each of these teapots I have seen over the years are different, as the color combinations was apparently left up to the individual painters. This one has a really sweet expression on her face and I love the flowers on her bonnet.
The teapot measures 8 inches high by 8 inches long by 6 in diameter and holds 32 ounces.
The wonderfully nostalgic Old Lady teapot is in very good +++ used vintage condition with no chips, cracks or wear and has only the normal mild crazing consistent with age and material.
