Rookwood Limoges teapot, Bunnies,Bats, Nichols, ca
Item Details
Description
Very early Rookwood lidded teapot with Limoges style decoration of two bunnies on one side and flying bats on the other, most likely the work of Maria Longworth Nichols, circa 1881. The charming form retains its original rattan handle. Incised on the bottom is the notation "Rookwood Pottery Cin.O." typical of pieces made in 1881. We have little trouble attributing the piece to Nichols: who but the boss could get away with not signing a piece and Nichols has painted other bunnies in similar poses including a pre-Rookwood small pitcher done at Frederick Dallas Hamilton Road Pottery which is pictured on page 29 of "The Ladies, God Bless ‘Em" a publication of the Cincinnati Art Museum. Height 5 3/8 inches. Fine overall crazing and a pin head size nick to the side of the spout.
Condition
fine overall crazing, pin head nick to spout
