English Aesthetic Brown Transfer Teapot With Seaweed and Ships, 1882

This is a very nice English Aesthetic Movement era brown transfer teapot.  The design has ships on each side with seaweed pattern on the side and lid.  The teapot is marked with a British registry mark for the year 1882, but with no maker’s mark.

This teapot is in very good condition; there is a chip on the underside of the lid that is underglaze, meaning it is original to the piece.  There is also some minor staining to the top of the teapot where the lid rests, but is not stained elsewhere.
