Description

A mid 20th century Chinese pottery Cadogan teapot of unusual form with a beige base colour to the teapot centre and brown coloured wood like handle and spout. The base clay rim with the hole in the centre for filling.

Lot Notes: The name Cadogan has been attributed to these puzzle pots since they were popularised in the early 19th century by Lord and Lady Cadogan. It works by a hole being placed in the base with a tapered tube running from the base through the inside to near the top of the teapot. Thus it can be filled through the bottom then turned the right way up without spilling. Effectively a Cadogan Puzzle Pot is a funnel inverted into the base of the teapot.

Condition: Very good, minimal wear and age related use.

Measurements: 11cm H x 9.5cm W x 19cm L
