Silver bachelor teapot

£ 925

Silversmith
Place

London

Year

1936

A beautifully made teapot in the George II bullet style with hand-raised circular body and straight cast spout. The lid has a discrete flush hinge - a sign of quality - and is surrounded by hand-engraved lattice and mask decoration that would have been popular in the 1730s when this style was originally made.

The bachelor teapot is a charming piece of antique silver, being simply a smaller version of full-size teapots, but intended for one person. Occasionally mistaken as part of a child's tea service, they are deliberately petite and were created long before the advent of the tea bag!
