This teapot and cover are decorated with a molded pattern first introduced by Worcester around 1755. The embossed pattern of chrysanthemum flowers and leaves was inspired by Chinese porcelain. Here, it is left plain with only minimal gold decoration applied to the rims, finial, spout, and handle. The teapot's form was a standard shape at Worcester from the late 1750s until the 1770s, when Sevres shapes were introduced. The simple but practical design poured well, and never cracked upon the impact of boiling water, thus contributing to the longevity of the pot.
