Leighton Blue Bird & Roses Teapot

Much Loved Leighton Blue Bird  - Thrifty $5.95

When I saw this teapot it tickled a memory I had. I thought perhaps someone else would feel the same. The edge banding it lovely as are the blue birds flying on the pot. The bird and flower basket on the face are repeated on the reverse side.

Perhaps a Milk Bath will help the look. See below.

Other than crazing issue, no chips, dings or cracks. Gold shows some use in spots. After all, this was a loved teapot.

Maker's Mark shown below. 

This teapot is 8 1/4" from spout tip  to turn of handle and 5 1/2" to the knob.

Aged, often used without proper heating and sometimes ... well I don't know why... Crazing occurs. Very often a Milk Bath will help the piece to LOOK better. The craze lines won't disappear but they won't be as obvious either.

Place your crazed pot, lid and/or cup in a pot and cover with whole milk until submerged. Heat over low for an hour. Do not boil. Turn off heat, let cool and remove pieces. Rinse and then tuck on the shelf for amazed viewing. If the crazing or crack it not too deep, the piece will look "better."
