Grainger - New Oval teaset 

The  "new oval" teaset would have had a teapot, teapot stand, slop bowl, sugar box or sucrier, creamer, bread and butter plates,  bute shaped tea cups and possibly also coffee cans, and saucers.   Examples of teapots in this group are illustrated in plates 1177 to 1181 in Miller and Berthoud (1985).  Teasets made by Grainger are similar to those made by another Worcester maker Chamberlains. Grainger teapots can be distiguished by knob shape and the very large end to the spout. Grainger sucriers have a similar knob to the teapots. (main Grainger cup page
