Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The creamware Greatbatch cylindrical teapot and cover of lead-glazed earthenware is painted with enamels. On one side, Aurora in her chariot is drawn by two winged horses rising from the waves and, on the other side, a flaming sun rises, observed by two putti-this image depicts two putti awakening Auror'a brother, the sun god Helios.
A band of beads encircles the pot at the neck, base and shoulder as well as the cover.
Aurora, in mythology, was the personification of the dawn.
The cover with two similar chinoiserie oval panels with a central bank in puce with two painted green polychrome fruits- a melon and a squash. The chinoiserie and fruit theme is continued with similar decoration beneath the spout and to either side of the handle.
