I really need your help on this one: I think the teapot is very old. I estimate it to be at least 100 years - but this is base on my feeling, not my knowledge, and I hate to admit that my feelings have been wrong before.
The pot is in almost perfect shape except some loss of the gold. It looks to me like it is mostly hand painted but the image of the lady seems to be a transfer image. The blue could be cobalt blue.
There are no markings at all but some signs of some kind of adhesive. I have come across old pieces with taped on (some times on band aids) names of the former owners. This looks like one of these items.
I would appreciate any comments.
Thanks for looking:)
