FIRST PERIOD WORCESTER LOBED TEAPOT AND COVER

'PRUNUS ROOT' PATTERN

England, c1755-60


 

An early teapot of rare lobed shape with loop handle, the lid with a turned mushroom finial, painted in the Prunus Root

pattern with trailing branching continuing over the rim of the cover; bearing a workman's mark in underglaze-blue

beneath the cover

  

Condition: Small chip to the neck, the cover with a few minor nicks to the inside

 

Note:

 

A slightly earlier bullet shaped lobed teapot (c.1753-4) was included in Part I, Watney Collection,  

lot 158, p. 85. The lot notation states the “particular” rarity of blue and white on the lobed form,  

which usually occurs with overglaze decoration.

 

“Prunus Root” is probably copied from Chinese export original; however, one has not yet been found. 

It was introduced at Worcester in 1753, being one of the earliest and most popular blue and white patterns.

It occurs on plain and fluted teawares, mustard pots, mugs, as well as “toy” Worcester porcelains.
