Antique Etruscan Majolica Cauliflower Teapot. Produced by Griffen, Smith and Hill c. late 1800s, This piece is highly detailed and glazed in lush shades of pink, green, and a pale yellow including the interior. The hallmark dates it pre-1880. 

“The largest and best known of the American majolica manufacturers was Griffen, Smith and Hill. 

In 1867, John Griffen partnered with W.A.H. Schreiber in establishing a pottery in conjunction with the Philadelphia Iron Works producing fire bricks and Rockingham wares. The business thrived and in 1871 John Smith, an English potter from Stoke-on-Trent joined the firm with Schreiber leaving soon thereafter. Griffin’s sons Henry and George joined the firm along with potter William Hill. Thereafter, the partnership was known as Griffen, Smith and Hill and by 1879 had begun producing Majolica.”

I acquired this piece at the estate of two highly regarded college professors who after retirement in the 1990s turned their love for collecting into a prosperous antique business selling in Round Top as well as across the South.
As you can imagine, their estate was unbelievable…it had the most extensive Majolica collection I’ve ever seen. They were avid book collectors, orchid enthusiasts, and custom framers who expertly framed botanicals and birds from antique books and magazines. 

It measures 5.5” tall with the lid x 8” wide. It has a touch of wear to the original finish in a couple of places  and a small chip in the interior rim but nothing that detracts from it’s displayability or inconsistent with its age. 

**I also have The cauliflower sugar bowl available in a  separate listing**
