Do they have any value? all are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. The glaze at the bottom of the pots have those hairline lines.Thank you.Rhoda
Hello, Michelle here. I appreciate the opportunity to assist you.
Your teapots were made by H.J. Wood Ltd. in Burslem England which began operation around 1884. Your mark was used from about 1948.
In a good market these would sell for around $75 USD each
The crazing in the glaze has no effect on the value
Anything else you can tell me about them? the ones I have are apple green. Yellow and one is : purple skirt, Yellow umbrella, and green cape
They can in a solid cream color as well as a variety and combination of colors.
H.J. Wood Ltd, later became Wood and Son but went in to receivorship in 2005.
Do you have any other questions for me on your teapots?
If you have further questions please feel free to ask me.
Thank you, Michelle
