With plentiful gilding on its spout, handle, and lid, golden dots everywhere, and a menagerie of spiky creatures and seaweed silhouettes, this John Rose Coalport teapot is perfect for a tea celebrating all things mythical and oriental. Its dragon is a half-hedgehog, half-fantastical beast from the Far East. Dating from circa 1805-1810, the pot is oval prow- or boat-shaped, one of Coalport's most popular styles. Its raised lid has a jaunty, playful feel.
