This lovely white with dark blue Willow pattern teapot made in England by the Sadler Co. This retro has a great traditional shape and is ribbed horizontally giving this a unique look. See NOTE about the Sadler Co. below.
The body is ivory (off white) with dark blue images of willow trees growing in an exotic setting. The lid has 2 bands of ornate rings around it and a nice curled finial at the very top. The handle has the same pattern as one of the bands on the lid. The spout is decorated with some snippets of the scene depicted on the body of this retro English teapot.
The bottom of the teapot is stamped SADLER ENGLAND.
In nice vintage condition with no cracks or chips. There is some fine crazing all over this retro teapot, and there is an area inside with dark discoloration - see photo closeup. Item’s price reflects this condition.
