American Transitional Queen Anne Pewter Teapot
This pot is 9” high. It is not marked but was probably made by Samuel Danforth. Could also be made by the Danforth Group, Boardman Group or Samuel Kilbourne when he lived in Connecticut. We figured Samuel Danforth because of the beehive finial. This is one of the earliest types of “tall pots,” introduced in the beginning of the 19th Century. This is also the inverted mold type which utilizes two of the same body molds placed upon each other. This method gains height and conserves molds. It is a rarer form.
