FIRST PERIOD WORCESTER WHITE-GLAZED PORCELAIN TEAPOT
A rare example, in blanc de chine, of barrel form with flowering branch decoration between scroll
and dot upper and lower borders, leaf and opening flower finial with corresponding dot
and scroll border; pegged footrim; unmarked
Very few Worcester wares were left in the white. There are two barrel-form teapots know –
this version and a rarer Chinese landscape. Most white wares were left to Bow, due to the whiteness
of the Bow porcelain. This decoration is not applied, as was the Bow, but pressed by hand into a
mold while being spun on a wheel (called jollied).
