1820 Child's Cinderella Staffordshire Transferware Blue & White Teapot
The famous persecuted heroine story of Cinderella is found as a legend or myth back to the Romans in various forms. It's seen in Italy in the 1600's and later published by the Brothers Grimm in 1812.
This is a beautiful early 1800's 4.5 inch tall blue & white transferware English pottery children's toy teapot in poor condition (ready for restoration) with much early character. It is one that we simply could not pass up for condition. The beauty lies in the amazing large encompassing medieval scene of Cinderella in her carriage on teapot front. There is a lovely little mouse on each side of the teapot spout, as well as her slipper on a velvet cushion on reverse. Children played heavily with this much loved English piece and it shows. It is rare and beautiful with beautiful transfer ware skill work.
It still displays well. Amazingly, the teapot top is intact but chipped and broken and there is a crack on teapot front. Click images to see total condition in very close up and movable views. It was found in Torquay, Devon, England. Sold as is.
Size: 4.5 inches high.
The body is 3.75 inches wide, and with handle and spout,
the total teapot width is 5.75 inches.
