English black basalt teapot, c.1790

This black basalt teapot with a neo-classical design of curtain swags was most likely made in Staffordshire, England in the late 1700s.

Teapot measures 9-1/2″ long and 5″ high.

The figural knob is in the form of a perched spaniel.

A well made silver spout replaces the original black basalt spout.

Another teapot, similar to mine, shows what the original simple shaped spout might have looked like on mine.
