Unusual octagonal Victorian silver teapot

£0 Shipping to

Charming antique silver teapot in an interesting swirling octagonal design and urn-shaped finial topping the lid. Unusually, the hinged lid opens at right angles to the teapot handle. The piece is hand chased with swirling flutes around the body accompanied by sections of floral chased patterns on the body and cover. The teapot will serve about four cups of tea and pours perfectly.

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.

Estimated weight given excludes the wooden handle and finial.

Note: Under the rules of the UK government's Ivory Act 2018, this silver teapot qualifies for an ivory exemption certificate.  If required, the ivory parts may be replicated and replaced with an ivory substitute at no additional cost.
