Canister-shaped George III silver teapot

Canister-shaped George III silver teapot


An 18th century drum-shaped silver teapot with a discrete flush hinged cover surmounted by a detachable finial and fitted with a fruit wood handle. The elegant straight tapering spout pours beautifully and proves this is a wonderful example of the drum style of teapot, in superb condition and with excellent clear hallmarks. The handle is a replacement, reproduced with one in the style of the original.

A silver teapot pours like no other and 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.
