Vintage Brown Transferware Teapot

Royal Staffordshire Pottery
Difficult to find!
For consideration I am offering this stunning polychrome brown transferware teapot in a fabulous pattern by Clarice Cliff of Royal Staffordshire. The pattern is 'Rural Scenes' by AJ Wilkinson/Royal Staffordshire of Burslem England and is difficult to find. The brown transfer has hand painted touches of color in burgundy, olive green and golden taupe...all under glaze.
The teapot shows the same scene in either side, depicting a rural scene of a man leaving to hunt on horseback with his dogs. There are sheep grazing near the cottage in the background. The border is one of my favorites, being a mix of farming implements including a rake, hoe. shovel and bee skep mixed with lattice, ivy and berries. The scene is depicted on each side of the teapot.
Appx 6" tall with lid on x 9” handle to spout, excellent condition with minimal age appropriate crazing only.
