English Castleford-type white felspathic stoneware oval teapot with a removable cover, and molded and applied relief decoration, and "20" impressed on the base. The Castleford Pottery was run by David Dunderdale & Co., operating from 1790 to 1821 in Castleford, about 15 miles from Leeds in Yorkshire; the pottery produced a range of wares in creamware, black basalt, and white feldspathic stoneware. Although many factories, such as the Sowter and Company pottery (1800-late 1820s) of Mexborough, Yorkshire, and the Chetham and Woolley site (c.1795-c.1820), Wedgwood, and the Davenport Pottery (1794-1887) in Staffordshire, made similar feldspathic stoneware wares, the term 'Castleford' is now used generically to described a wide range of feldspathic stoneware, silver-shaped tea wares, jugs, and similar objects that are slip-cast with relief-molded decoration. The pot has a straight rim with gallery of alternating reeds and arches; over the straight sides divided into four panels by vertical columns with plant-like capitals. The front panel has three classically dressed women with dog and trees; and the opposite side has two young boys, one pulling and the other pushing a lion. The base has a band of alternating reeds and concave arches. The oval domed lid has a fleur-de-lis finial surrounded by inverted leaves; the C-scroll handle has a long thumb hold; and the shaped spout has acanthus leaves and stipled background.
