Description

Hello:

This brown and multi color red ware tea pot has an interesting history. This is a WWII English Staffordshire tea pot made during WWII and exported to the United States as ballast for ships coming to America for war supplies.

The bottom of the tea pot is marked as follows: "World War II, Made in England, Escorted to United States by the Allied Forces". Between the knot symbol (which is the signature for Staffordshire Pottery) there is a Union Jack flag and a British Lion. The lid is printed with, "For U.S.A. Britain and Democracy".

This hand decorated tea pot was one of a variety of pots made in Staffordshire England and exported to America between 1939 to 1945.

This little tea pot is chipped and worn, but has the aura of an item born of war. The teapot measures 8 inches from spout to handle. It is 5 1/4 inches tall with lid. Note that there are two chips on the spout. The gold trim is worn. There is bubbling of the lower portion of the tea pot, as manufactured.

If you collect tea pots, this might be one you would like to acquire for its historic interest. Also it is quite attractive with its brown background, and detailed hand decorated border. This tea pot is not pink and white with roses, but it definitely has a charm all of its own.
