I have a Yellow...

I have a Yellow teapot with blue vines, blue flowers, and blue gardening tools. Rake, shovel, sythe, and it says Toile on the bottom. I haven't been able to find out anything about it.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

It's old.

Hi,

Thank you for the images and for your patience.

This is a fairly contemporary teapot from the 1990s that was produced in China and made to look like antique 19th century blue transferware from Staffordshire, England.

Toile is a French word for a this type of decoration on textiles, such as upholstery, curtain and linens.

The teapot was purposely 'antiqued' to look older than it is actually.

This has a highest re-sale value of $10 - $20 on today's market.
