Unique Tole Painted Federal Period Oval Teapot, circa 1820, possibly Massachusetts, probably sailor-decorated, featuring two whaling scenes, one flanked by trumpeting angels, the sky above ships and spouting whales in rays like the Japanese rising sun, which this sailor may well have visited while whaling. The black ground has further floral designs. Pivoting handle. 10- 1/2" H x 10" x 6" with the handle up. Very good condition.
