This gorgeous brown transferware, polychrome teapot is by George Jones in the Chrysanthemum Pattern. It dates to the Aesthetic Movement which you can read about here:

This teapot is a dark brown transfer that has been hand painted in golden yellow, pink and rusty brown. It has a different Chrysanthemum arrangement on each side. It is trimmed around the handle, spout and rim with gold. Both the bottom of the teapot and of the lid are marked with the George Jones and Sons Crescent symbol and the teapot also has British registration number of 21391 along with the pattern name, the number 17, and a hand applied number. In addition the teapot has two incised markings. One is a registration number and the other appears to be 67.

Absolutely gorgeous detail!

The company began operation in c.1864 at Stoke Upon Trent at the Trent Potteries Works as George Jones and in 1873 became George Jones & Sons Ltd. They produced gorgeous majolica and earthen wares.
In 1907 the works was renamed Crescent Potteries.
