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 usage such as “Censor”, “Dome-Top”, “Lighthouse” will be used as well as physical descriptions such as “Drum Shape” and “Pear Shape”. In buying any teapot make sure the top fits well.
Here is a unique/very rare drum shaped teapot. We have never seen another one with a brass wire loop handle. This pot has a berry knob and a curved spout. It appears well decorated and the knob is early. Note the interesting and not previously seen fitting that the handles are attached to. The round top fits into an inset rim. The base has a rim and is glazed.
