In a style that would have graced an early 19th century breakfast or tea table, this George III silver teapot is oblong in form with half-fluted body and gadroon border. It has a finely made flush hinge to the lid - a sign of quality - and is mounted on four ball feet. Its capacity is 950ml, approximately 1¾ pints.

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.
