anyone for tea?


this teapot dates I think from the 1940s or 1950s. The impressed mark is STATE GIBSONS ENGLAND, my little book on pottery & porcelain marks tells me that Gibsons used the 's' on the end of their name from the 1940s, but I don't know about the word STATE. I've always liked the stripes and the colours, it is quite crazed on the glaze, but inside is very clean and looks like it might never have been used.

  2. It is a rather unusual pot. Reminds me of the Big Top.
