English Hallmarked Sterling Teapot London. Dated 1821.
A stunning English Hallmarked Sterling Teapot, it dates 1821, London. The teapot is rather an small, yet odd round shape that decorated with a bold engraving of a loin in the centre of on both the rear and front. It is features simple, yet classic decorative elements of bead and scroll in the design. It is a beautiful combination of silver and wood, with the wood appearing on the handle and the top of the lid. The wooden handle and top would have made it easier to pick up and pour a hot beverage at the time.
A lovely little teapot perfect for a timeless gift, or for those who enjoy collecting everyday objects with a past.
