A very attractive John Rose Coalport teapot and cover c1798. It is of a charming 'waisted' moulded oval form, with elegant little flower sprig decoration in coloured enamels around the body and cover.

John Rose had been an apprentice to Thomas Turner at the Caughley factory until aged 21 when he set up his own manufacturing company with Edward Blakeway at Jackfields around 1793. By 1796 they had set up a works across the other side of the River Severn at Coalport, from where this delightful teapot originated.

The main body of the teapot is called a 'waisted' moulded oval form due to the narrowing in of the lower portion of the body and the moulded spiral fluted lines around it, very popular towards the end of the Eighteenth century in tea wares. The body is decorated around it with three rows of hand painted little flower sprigs in pink and green enamels.

 

The teapot spout is faceted moulded to the lower portion and has applied pink decoration to the tip. A pink line also edges the rim of the teapot.

 

The open loop handle of the teapot has pink foliage applied down the back edge and has an inward moulded spur to the lower portion of the handle.

    

The oval cover of the teapot is also spiral fluted and has a faceted oval moulded mushroom finial embellished with pink lines.

 

The cover is also decorated with the same little flower sprigs in two rows. The lid's rim also carries a pink line edge to it.
