Teapot and cover, camel and driver, porcelain, made by Royal Doulton, Burslem, England, 1902-1918.
A mould-made, plain white, porcelain teapot, in the shape of a camel and driver. The camel is sitting on an oval-shaped base, carrying two saddlebags and wearing a harness decorated with tassels. The body of the camel and the saddlebags form the main chamber of the teapot and the neck and head form the spout. The camel's mouth is open and this provides the opening for the spout. Behind the camel is a bearded driver, wearing a turban. He is standing in a curved position, pulling at a cloth attached to the saddle of the camel. This forms the handle of the teapot.
A mould-made, plain white, teapot cover, in the shape of a camel's hump and saddle bag. A roughly square-shaped insert rises to a bulbous top, moulded in the shape of a saddle bag tied to the hump of a camel. A rope is tied through the centre of the saddlebag, with a knot at the top.
