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surrounded by hand-engraved lattice and mask decoration that would have been popular in the 1730s when this style was originally made.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 tea service is a charming set of antique silver, being simply a smaller version of a full-size tea set, 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!

A silver teapot pours like no other
Sterling silver is the perfect material for fashioning teapots:

· No other material can be fashioned into such elegant and detailed forms, reflect light as beautifully, and a perfectly formed silver teapot spout will never drip.

· Second only to diamonds, silver has the highest thermal conductivity of any material, meaning that tea leaves can be brewed at a higher temperature than in any other teapot, allowing the tea leaves to fully release their flavours.

· That same high thermal conductivity means a silver teapot will retain heat and keep tea hot for much longer.

· Unlike porcelain and ceramic teapots, silver is sturdy and long-lasting, does not shatter and the occasional dent can be debruised.
