The rippling swirl design gives the teapot texture and added character. It has delicate pink rosebuds with greenery. The gold trim adds to the beauty of the teapot. The lid has a gold knob on top. The bottom is marked Sadler England with the number 1593 stamped in gold. We obtained this vintage teapot from an estate sale among many other vintage collectible items. This was well taken care and was used.
