James Sadler & Sons Ltd were an English pottery house that first started trading in 1882, with the maker’s mark on this teapot dating to around 1947. Sadler referred to themselves as ‘Teapot & Art Ware Manufacturers’ and were prolific in their production of teapots! They were most famous for the Brown Betty, a very simple (and somewhat boring) teapot, but also produced some great novelty teapots, including the famous racing car teapot (so cool!). This beautiful floral Sadler teapot is quite naive, but has the most beautiful decoration, including some super bling gold detail on the handle and spout! It’s not quite in the racing car category, but it’s definitely more exciting than the Brown Betty, and is in pretty decent nick for its years!
Dimensions: 13cm tall x 15cm in diameter (at its widest)
