Worcester is one of the most widely collected of 18th century English porcelain factories. The factory produced a huge variety of products and styles. This gives collectors a fantastic ranging from the very rare to the surprisingly common.
Worcester porcelain is believed to be the oldest or second oldest remaining English porcelain brand. The factory was founded at Warmstry House, Worcester in 1751. The period between 1751 and 1783 is often known as the Dr. Wall period after one of the founders. In 1783 the factory was purchased by Thomas Flight. After this various names were used until in 1862 when it became the Royal Worcester Porcelain Company, now part of the Portmeirion Group which is still in existence today.
The teapot is in excellent antique condition for something this old. There are tiny hairline cracks near lid flower (need jewelers glass to see) and very tiny little nips on the lid flower petals which are hardly noticeable but can be felt if you run your finger around the edge.
It is possible that the lid has been professionally restored because the glaze on the inside is not uniform or this could be as manufactured please see photo.
The picture has "bright areas" which are reflections, not damage.
