Limbach Polychrome Teapot

This is a really fun tea pot made by Limbach about 1775. The teapot is hand painted with a nice polychrome floral arrangement on both sides, has some nice relief design all around with a matching relief design to the lid and an animal shaped spout. Typical handle shape which gives this maker away fairly easily. The lid has two tiny hand painted flowers to it as well as a nice floral finial. The main pot is marked with an under glaze blue crossed L mark with a dot meants to imitate the Meissen crossed swords mark. The teapot is in great condition with a chip to a petal of the finial, a firing crack to one side where the spout meets the body as shown and some chipping to the inside edge of the foot which must have been done when it was made and does not affect it when on display. All in all about as nice an example as you will be able to find and in great condition. Plus the teapots are much harder to find than their coffee pots. The tea pot is 3.5 inches tall, 7 inches from spout to the handle and about 4 inches in diameter. Please email me for more information or photos.
