T for teapot

Today's contribution to T for Tuesday, is an old teapot I picked up at a market a while ago.
It is quite old, probably from the turn of the 20th century, going by the silver mark on the base and was made in England.   It has lost it's lid and is misshapen and very tarnished, but I love it and will probably not clean it up at all.
I love these beautiful lily of the valley flowers that are carved(?) on the side.
And these gorgeous flourishes on the handle!

I have not yet sketched it, but I will, soon.

Happy creating!
