Excellent example from the Arts & Crafts era of a hand raised silver teapot by The Guild of Handicrafts maker John Sidney Reeve.

Reeve has reinterpreted a classic Adam period design from the 1790s and incorporated his own design cues: delicate interwoven rope borders with bead medallions plus applied reeded handle mounts with tri-form bead ends. The inverted fluted body have the unusual feature of a mottled, hammered finish.

The Arts & Crafts movement emerged from a disenchantment with the impersonal, mechanised direction of society in the 19th century and sought to return to a simpler, more fulfilling way of living. The movement was admired for its use of high quality materials and for its emphasis on utility in design.
