John Coney American

Not on view

This rare surviving teapot by John Coney is an unusual interpretation of the standard pear­shaped model (68.141.89) that predominated in England from the late seventeenth century into the 1720s. Its small spout is set close to the body and its cover has an especially high dome. The coat of arms, engraved on an oval shield within a symmetrical cartouche, is that of Mascarene, for Jean­Paul Mascarene (1685–1760), a military officer and later lieutenant governor of Nova Scotia.
