Comments: An extremely attractive oval teapot
complete with it's original stand. This is a fine example of one of the
most desirable forms of teapot and it maintains it's original, crisp

high quality workmanship - the flush/secret hinge hidden within the
engraving, the floral finial and the well designed decoration.
