This beautiful, oval, ribbed, antique silver teapot is straight-sided with an attractive wavy profile decorated with bands of brightcut decoration. The lid has a hidden, flush jeweller's hinge, a sign of superior quality, and is surmounted by an oval wooden finial to complement the carved wood handle.

The excellent hallmarks on the base are sharp and the pot is also marked in the lid. All in all, it is a particularly pretty example of a Georgian silver teapot and will serve approximately five cups of tea.

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.
