Can you help identify this old teapot?

Posted by Mom-of-4-kids (My Page) on

I have this blue and white teapot with a recessed lid and I am unable to find anything like it on the internet. Any idea of the vintage, origination, value? It is quite heavy and about 4-1/2" tall without the handle and about 7-1/4" tall with the handle. I think the handle is brass, along with the rim and the end of the spout. The inside is stained and the teapot appears old. I would appreciate any help you can provide! Thanks so much. (the only thing remotely similar is found on the website

Try "flow blue" as part of the search terms.

It is either oriental or made to look oriental - the shape, the handle and the recessed lid are all oriental features.

It looks like a 19th century Staffordshire teapot to me. Any chance of a pic of the base?
