Description:

Dignity is a bulbous body style of the late 19th century. Its shape is reminiscent of a Victorian matron in her heyday. The fluted body is embellished with a botanical embossing emanating from the upper handle terminals. Teapots also show this embossing on the opposite side of the handle terminal high above the spout.

The circular arch finial and C-shaped handles are other attributes on holloware pieces.
