Early Volkstedt Lidded Pot

This is a rare find - a barrel shaped coffee or tea pot with its lid made by Volkstedt around 1760. The pot is hand painted with a nice floral arrangement to the front and the back side with some scattered small flowers in between. The lid has three small flowers to it. The handle and spout have a nice shape to them with some puce highlights. The main body has rings to the paste as shown. A really ncie little pot from the early days. The piece in great condition with some of the usual manufacturing issues which are part of the charm for these pieces in the form of black firing spots, etc. The lid has a small chip to the edge and another small one next to it, the bottom handle terminal has crack all around where it attaches to the main body which is farily common and does not affect it in any way and the spout has been repaired which has yellowed a bit. The pot displays superbly and is a nice survivor from a long time ago. The pot is marked underneath with the crossed hayforks mark which was meant to look like crossed swords. It is about 5 inches tall including the lid, 5 inches from handle to spout tip and 3.5 inches in diameter. Please email me for more information or photos.
