Colorful Ashworth Ironstone Teapot, Ca. 1865
England Ca. 1865
A handsome teapot with a deep green (British racing green) body and vignettes of flowers, a Chinese figure with a parasol behind the spout and gold swags. The bold British Crown Armorial mark on the base corresponds to the 1862-1968 ownership of G. L. Ashworth & Bros. who continued to use the Mason’s ironstone designs and molds.
Excellent antique condition with only light rubbing of the gold.
5 1/8" high, 7 5/8" long, 4 1/2" wide
