Hi,
My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to help you with this question.

The Ellgreave Pottery Company operated in Staffordshire, England beginning in the 1920s. The mark on your teapot indicates it was made before 1921.

If it is in perfect condition, the current retail (replacement) value of your teapot is approximately $50.
