A really fun teapot in the form of a little old lady in a voluminous green dress, cape and equipped with an umbrella. She wears her hair in a bun with a floral bonnet and a big bow under her chin.

The interior is clean with a tea leaf strainer at the intake to the spout.

To the underside is "LITTLE OLD LADY REG. No. 827655 MADE IN ENGLAND" The registration number indicates the year 1938 in the British Registry..

Dimensions: Height 8 ½"; Handle to spout 7 ½"; Diameter base 6". In very good vintage condition. No chips or cracks. Slight loss to hand painted bow. The florals to the bonnet, also hand painted, show tiny losses. Crazing to the teapot is almost invisible to the naked eye, and is exaggerated in the photos.
