HUNGERFORD ARCADE: RARE TWIN SPOUT TEAPOTS


ROCKINGHAM ENGLISH TWIN SPOUT TEAPOT

AND
UNKNOWN SCOTTISH TWIN SPOUT TEAPOT

The Stallholders at Hungerford Arcade never cease to amaze me with the quality of quirky antiques and collectables they manage to find.  Here we have a very rare, twin spout teapot made by Rockingham, England c1835.  It has a wonderful raised acanthus leaf and flower design around the top of the pot which just shouts out quality!

The second of these beautiful teapots is owned by manager, Don Greenslade, it is believed to be Scottish but as yet, we cannot find any information relating to it.  If you know anything, please let me know.
