English creamware, globular teapot attributed to William Greatbatch (1735-1813), decorated in red, purple, green, black, yellow, and gilding. Greatbatch was a well-known Staffordshire potter, who had also worked for Thomas Whieldon and Josiah Wedgwood as a supplier of molds and ceramic wares. This teapot form, with its various features, was one of Greatbatch's most common, known with several types of decoration. The pot has a concave neck; an inverted loop or ear-shaped handle; a curved, fluted spout with molded acanthus leaves around its base; a slightly domed cover with an applied, reclining flower knob with a flower and leaf terminal; and bead moldings around the lid, pot opening, shoulder, top and botton of the center band, and the flat base. The body and lid are painted in a chintz style with alternating vertical floral bands of broad purple bands with yellow flowers; linear flower sprigs that extend onto the concave neck bordered by purple bands with trefoils and an orange band down the middle; and a chevron pattern bordered by orange bands with wavy-dotted lines. The body is encircled by an applied molded band of trailing flowers and foliage, which has been gilded, a style which was popular with Greatbatch customers. The pot was turned on the lathe and a central horizontal band of 1-2mm depth and 19mm width was removed, and the sprigged band was then applied, usually in short sections. This type of moldings, banding, indented ear-shaped handle, spout, and lid is typical of fragments found on the Greatbatch site in Fenton. Condition: Some hairline cracks and chips to the upper flange of the teapot and damage to the tip of the spout.
