Vintage From Paul is delighted to offer this Antique Sudlow Burslem England Lemon Yellow Teapot. 

Sudlows operated at the Adelaide Pottery Works in Burslem from 1886 to 1965. The works took their name from the street that they were located in - Adelaide Street was in existance by 1851.Robert Sudlow was born on 13 May 1844 in Welshampton, Shropshire, the son of Thomas and Mary. He died on 4 December 1916 in Alsager, Cheshire. 

Robert Sudlow went into partnership with Samuel Gibson and formed the pottery company Gibson, Sudlow & Co. at Bourne's Bank, Burslem in approximately 1874. (The '& Co.' included a Mr Lewis). In 1884 he formed his own company called Sudlow and Son. At first he continued to operate at Bourne's Bank as sole owner (c.1884 to 1892) while also working the newley built Adelaide Street Works.

The company manufactured earthenware - especially teapots.

This teapot has a lemon yellow body accented with a wide white rim.  On the rim there are yellow and gold lemons.  The knob, spout, handle and rim are embelished with 24 carat gold.

The underside of the teapot is marked in black with "Sudlow's Burslem, Made In England".  Also incised is "England"  There is also gold numbers on the back which we believe are 02404".  We estimate the date of manufacture of this teapot to be in the 1910's.

The  Teapot  stands 4 inches in height without the lid in place, 5 inches in height with the lid in place. The piece measures 10 inches from handle to spout. The base measures 3-1/4 inches in diameter. The capacity is four (4) cups or 32 fluid ounces.

This lovely Teapot  is in is in excellent condition, no cracks,chips, stains or repairs, has age crazing to the glaze, which does not detract and is quite common in these aged pieces.  There is also wear to the gilding on the upper portion of the handle...all the other gilding is intact.
