Expert:  Robert S. replied 1 year ago.
Thanks so much for the photos of the tea pot. I can now see exactly which one you have, it's a slightly rarer form than usual, with the hexagonal shape, flat top and recessed lid.This was quite a trendy Art Deco shape in its day, which was the late-1930s when it was produced by the Nelson Pottery, Hanley, Stoke-Trent in England, to compete with Grimwade's "Royal Winton" version that is very similar.The British Design Registry # ***** dates the Marina chintz pattern to 1937. This chintz pattern of all-over English garden flowers on a grey leafy background was extremely popular in its day and has remained so with collectors ever since. The origins of chintz can be traced back to 17th century Indian fabrics exported to England, characterized by patterns of large flowers and richly plumed fantasy birds on scrolling leafage. The word "Chintz" is a corruption of the Indian word "Chint" meaning broad, brightly printed fabric. As for value, if you saw your teapot for sale in an antique store it would have a retail value of about $160. This is also the replacement values for insurance purposes.Expect to get in the range of 30% - 40% of this if you were to sell at auction or on line (eBay, etc). I do hope this helps!Please let me know if I can be of further assistance with this, I would be glad to.Best wishes,Robert
