English Creamware William Greatbatch Pottery Teapot Decorated with Aurora, 1770-82.

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.
