Earthenware teapot

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.
