Huge 16" Gallon Size Vintage Blue Transferware Teapot Salesman Sample Asiatic Pheasants Maling Pheasants Birds Roses
Here is a Ginormous Blue Transferware Teapot from Maling of England. It's such an unusual, highly collectible piece…fun and very hard to find. I have a red one and a brown one in my own collection. The pattern is very much like Asiatic Pheasants, which was produced by a slew of English potters, and depicts pheasants and butterflies amongst a bouquet of flowers.
You can read more about Asiatic Pheasants at my blog, HERE.
The Maling potteries were in business from 1762 to 1963 and claimed, at one time, to be the largest pottery in the world.
The stamp on this teapot was in use by Maling between 1920 and 1963 when the factory closed. There are some variations of this stamp, including the words 'Made In England' which will always indicate that a piece was made after 1921.

This wonderful piece measures 16" from handle to spout x 9 3/4" tall
Condition is great, having no chips or cracks, just some typical age crazing.
The last photo shown depicts this teapot alongside a normal sized teapot that holds about 6 cups…just to give you an idea of how large it is!
