teapot staffordshire circa 1780

Salt glazed, stoneware teapot and cover modelled as double heads, the masks derived from contemporary Rodney jugs.
It is painted blue, green and pinkish brown. An impressed inscription around the top reads 'GOD SAVE THE KING AND GOD SAVE THE QEEN' (sic). The cover is modelled as a bird sitting on foliage.
