Highly unusual little sugar pot from “The Daintee Lady” series by Sadler the renowned teapot maker.
This gorgeous collectors gem is identical to the teapots in the same series, in the shape of a lady in her crinoline dress. I have never come across a sugar pot before, and searched online, but have not been able to find another like this little treasure. It is a lovely vintage pot and very sought after by collectors.
These original Sadler pieces date from the Art Deco era circa 1930’s. James Sadler & Sons (Ltd), makers of Earthenware specialized in teapots and operated in England from c.1899 – until the year 2000 when it was taken over by Churchill China. The bottom of the pot is decorated with the markings, as shown on the photo, stamped: *Ye Daintee Ladyee Made in England *
This little lady is in very good condition with some age related crazings and small marks, but no chips or cracks.
