19th C. Staffordshire Transferware Teapot – “Tibetian Musk Deer” Pattern
Staffordshire transferware covered teapot, circa 1820.
Dimensions: Approximately 6” x 4½” (body without handle and spout) x 6½” tall to top of lid.
The body has an overall floral design.
The sides have a panel illustrating a deer.
The panel is surrounded by diaper panels. The design of these panels has also led to this being sometimes referred to as the “Peanut Border” pattern.
The source print “Tibetian Musk” is from the book "A Cabinet of Quadrupeds" by John Church published in 1805.
This print was also used by Hall in the Quadrupeds series and by Enoch Woods in the Sporting series.
Condition: Glaze losses on the underside and the interior, inpainting of possible damage behind the handle, glaze bubble on lid; otherwise in excellent condition consistent with age and usage.
