Doulton teapot

A salt-glazed stoneware teapot made by Doulton in 1875. It has a silver lid made by W and C Edwards of Clerkenwell and some later silver reinforcements to a broken spout, showing it was much treasured. It belongs to a class of ware known as ‘art pottery’, which appeared in the 1860s in response to criticism from people like William Morris (1834-1896), who hated the mechanical precision and unnatural-looking materials then found in everyday goods.
