Antique 1800's Flow Blue Staffordshire England Ironstone Teapot/Pitcher/Brewer
Antique 1800's Flow Blue Staffordshire England Ironstone Teapot/Pitcher/Brewer.
Very unique antique Staffordshire England flow blue ironstone vessel. I'm not quite sure what this item was used for, but it features flow blue transferware designs of leaves and flowers. It has a handle, a large concaved opening at the top with 3 holes in the center (slightly off-center, actually) and a large spout. My guess is that its a tea brewer that you would place tea or coffee grounds in the top and pour hot water over it into the pitcher. This is only a guess. The bottom is stamped Ironstone Staffordshire England with the lion emblem above it.
