Military Gentleman Teapot by Cardew Southwest
Military Gentleman….This is from the earliest period of Cardew teapots and is considered rare. It has a companion teapot known as Military Two Step,which is a female dancer. They both have a pearlescent over-glaze. This too is a scarce pot, not quite as scarce as the lady version though.
