This non-drop tea pot as it was patented in the 1920s by makers G. M. Creyke & Sons, in Staffordshire. A very unusual to find one and in such excellent condition, it has a octagonal shape, though to be inspired by the cruise liners of the 1920s. The teapot is royal blue, with a country cottage scene in a border around the top part of the tea pot, with a metal spout.
There is some crazing, see 3rd photo, no chips or cracks. The mark on the bottom is of G. M. Creyke & Sons with numbers:
931169 and Patent no: 18148/22. See here for more info on the background, they went into liquidation in the 1940s. http://www.thepotteries.org/potworks_wk/135.htm
This tea pot was going to revolutionise tea pouring.
It would make a wonderful gift for someone who collects tea pots. This can be used for tea or put on display as it is such a remarkable antique.
