"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
Spherical, lightly brushed pewter teapot (a) and fitted lid (b) with walnut handle and finial. Body sits on round foot rim incised with four horizontal lines; attached triangular spout with horizontal and slightly flared lip opposite an attached wooden handle that juts out horizontally from below lid (level with spout), then curves down to body. Domed lid with attached rectangular finial.
