Teapot and Cover
It is likely that this teapot was originally part of a tea and coffee service. It is decorated with two scenes of women in fanciful dress seated in garden settings, painted in colors. The form—a globular body, with a strap handle, and bird’s head spout—was a popular model. A similar example of this type of teapot can be found in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, where it is part of a tea and coffee service decorated with birds, made at Frankenthal in ca. 1770.
