This adorable ceramic teapot was made by Shawnee Pottery in the 1940's and was patterned after the nursery rhyme Tom, Tom the Piper's Son. This version is the tricolor - very hard to find. Tom has his right hand around a pig which serves as the spout for this adorable pot and his left hand is holding a stock of corn. The colors of this teapot are a soft airbrush and include a burgundy, yellow and a soft light blue.
Fine Shawnee ceramic in a pale golden yellow base color, hand decorated with light blue green, golden yellow, and raspberry red. Tom has a yellow hat with a red feather, a red bow at his throat, and blue eyes.
Impressed mark on the bottom: 'Tom The Piper's Son Patented USA 44'
He is in excellent condition with no damage and very little signs of use. Stands about 6 1/2 inches tall, and 8 1/2 inches wide from spout to handle.
