A large teapot in caneware, probably made by William Ridgway. Excellent condition and a reliable attribution make this a most unusual find.
See Berthoud plate 1428 for attribution form the Ridgway shapes book. Despite the number of pots listed by Berthoud, it is rare to find an exact match.
Tiny nibble from rim of pot, under the lid. Otherwise perfect.
