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.
Here is a rare, petite, conical shaped teapot. It has a square or angular shaped handle and a stubby curved spout. Because the top is missing, it is harder to date but is probably late 19th century to the 1920s. There is an inset rim, a base rim and the bottom is glazed.
