Jackfield pottery is used to describe pottery made in the ceramics factory during the early 18th to mid 19th century in Jackfield, Shropshire in England, typically with rich black glazing atop relief and oil-gliding designs. The type of clay used by jackfield pottery was red clay which was fired at a very high temperature, then glazed with cobalt that has been heated to such a high temperature that it changes from deep blue to black. This wonderful teapot and matching stand are a wonderful example of Jackfield Ware. Delightfully gilded and with the addition of faux turquise jewels. It has a capacity of just over 1 pint. The underside of the base and the teapot both bear the gilded number 109 so its clear they are a matching pair. The underside of the base also reveals the red clay used by Jackfield
Courthouse Antiques has clarified that the Jackfield Ware Teapot & Stand c.1840 (LA370435) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being c.1840
Condition is very good considering its age. There is a little bit of rubbing to some of the gilding/turquise but nothing of any significance. Where the handle is affixed by the spout there is a small crease in the clay, but its barely visible and doesnt detract in any way.
