Fake Sadler car teapot?


With a number plate reading "KGT42" and a modern backstamp saying "Staffordshire Kenall shire range England"
What are other people's thoughts?

Hi Andy
When you say a "modern" backstamp are you talking about a transfer ? on glaze or underglaze ? Seems that the number plate was usually OKT 42 is that the give away ?
Great design is timeless that's certain, then it gets older and becomes nostalgia.

The backstamp looks like a transfer.
I'm no expert but I would be very worried at someone paying £800+ for this!

Its not sadler thats for certain, a completely different mould.There's another example in a different dark reddish colour which can be viewed
its claimed it was manufactured in 1978?
There is no internal strainer,so possibly correct.
Only these two examples so far turned up,i wonder how many more will surface now this one has broke the bank!!!

I have an original teapot of these and the number is OKT42 which means "okay tea for two". if it is marked Made in England and the number 820336 it is from 1937-1939. They starter to make them in 1937. After the war they are also marked Sadler.

I just purchased a dark blue one on ebay. Comparing it with my Mum's black one which has been in the family since 1937, it is too perfect, no chips or cracks in the glaze, looks like it was made yesterday. It has the internal strainer and all the back stamp information looks correct except the "Made in England" stamp appears to be ink on top of the glaze and is easily rubbed off, so to me it cannot be 75 years old. Someone somewhere is making some very convincing repros. Luckily I didn't pay too much for this one!
