Victorian Majolica Brown Teapot

Victorian Majolica Brown Teapot


Majolica has long been a favorite of Victorian-era collectors, prized for its whimsical designs and vivid colors and textures that truly capture the spirit of the age. And it's not hard to see why - majolica is the perfect blend of imaginative artistry and quality craftsmanship.

This charmingly provincial teapot is lovingly detailed - from its fine pebbled texture and creeping floral vines to the hinged metal lid with a charming finial at its crown. Quaint, dreamy, and idyllic, we love to think of long-ago afternoons spent over tea in the garden, perhaps with this very teapot! Truly a one-of-a-kind treasure, we hope that you find as much joy in this classic Victorian majolica piece as we do! 

Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. Circa 1880s. In good antique condition. Measures 7" from handle to spout x 6 1/4" from base to finial.

Learn More About Majolica

First appearing in 1851 at the Great Exhibition in London, Majolica refers to the richly colored and imaginative pottery that boomed during the Victorian era. By the time it was exhibited at the 1855 Paris World's Fair, it had taken Europe and the Americas by storm, even gaining the approval of Queen Victoria herself!

While Majolica took on many whimsical and outlandish forms during its time in vogue, most designs were based on plant and animal motifs whose bright colors and textures brought a certain lighthearted charm to the rich but often dark and heavy Victorian decor. The nature-inspired designs were particularly popular among the urban-dwelling middle class, as Majolica was an affordable way to create an impressive decor and bring pastoral beauty into the home.
