Close up of bird decoration

Close up of bird decoration. Earthenware teapot with an electroplated lid, decorated with birds and bamboo in low relief and painted in enamel colours, made by W T Copeland and Sons, Spode Works, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire after 1874. The shape of this teapot is inspired by Japanese metalware following influential exhibitions of Japanese art in Europe in the 1860s; a very similar shape of teapot was introduced by Wedgwood in 1878, under the name Satsuma, and by James Dixon and Sons for electroplated ware in the 1880s.
