Staffordshire teapot painted to look like crinoidal limestone (fossils of sea creatures from the Carboniferous Era). This teapot looks so modern, but it was made in the 1760s!
@erinbee wow I love this & I love knowing that someone in the 1700's also had a love of the lil chompy bois
@erinbee This is gorgeous, and actually reminds me of some of the work from the artist Rolito, who themselves take some inspiration from pre-Columbian design.
@coolpowers I hadn't heard of them, and I can totally see the resemblance between the shapes on this pot and the art from Patapon.
