Taste Setter Sigma Pierrot Teapot, 1960’s

IMG_8792

Unique teapot from Tastesetter by Sigma,  with a Pierrot clown reclining on the top, forming the handle and lid. The teapot was made in Japan and imported by Sigma which was a division of Rockville International operating in Garden City N.Y in the late 1960’s and 70’s.  Sigma was only around for about 10 years so these whimisical items are hard to find and thus very collectible.  This piece probably dates to the early 1970’s.

The condition is excellent, no nicks or cracks or other damage noted.

You can find this item and other treasures at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON, just west of Ottawa, ON.

Open 7 days a week, from 10am to 5pm, all year round.

Priced at $45.00
