Royal Worcester Aesthetic teapot achieves 100% increase on estimate

A Royal Worcester "Aesthetic" teapot performed well at Sotheby's Arts of Europe sale in London on May 15, achieving £5,000 ($8,400) against a £2,500 ($4,200) estimate - an increase of 100%.

The teapot is intended to mock followers of the aesthetic movement

The piece was produced in 1882 and was designed to poke fun at the excesses of the aesthetic movement.

Royal Worcester is among the oldest British porcelain companies and carries a strong international reputation for quality. In July last year, a wine funnel sold for £10,000 ($15,259) in a UK auction.
