Modelled as a smiling fish swallowing another fish, it's tail forming the handle, the other fish's tail forming the spout.

Adams and Bromley (1873-1893) produced other designs to match this teapot, also formed as fish, including a creamy jug, a sugar bowl and teapot stand.

Adams & Bromley majolica is excellent quality. They produced a wide range of Majolica with titles such as 'Pineapple', 'Water Lily', 'Apple & Pears' and 'Corn'.

Their modelling is crisp and glazes very bright. When Adams & Bromley majolica pieces are grouped together, they form a very cohesive and decorative collection.

Majolica Novelty teapots were a very popular 'fancy' for the Victorian home. Many designs were produced, the most popular being designs that monkeys, chickens, fish, turtles and other farmyard and exotic animals. Most were designed to create a feeling of humour and fun, designs to make the viewer smile.
