Description: Canton Tea, Coffee and Chocolate Pots make up a confusing world in defining the many, many variations to be found. Therefore, we have listed all of them under “Teapots”. Designations that have come into common useage such as “Censor”, “Dome-Top”, “Lighthouse” will be used as well as physical descriptions such as “Drum Shape”, “Pear Shape” and “Conical Shape”. In buying any teapot make sure the top fits well.
This good size tall ball shaped teapot has a curved spout, a large loop handle and a ball knob. It is attractive. It has a relatively small round bottom rim and a glazed bottom. The top sits on the rim rather than seated in an inset rim and it overhangs the base rim. Because of the plain loop handles and ball knobs, we date this pot from the middle of the 19th century to the late 19th Century.
