    8550 George I Silver Bullet Teapot

    £4,950

    A fine antique sterling silver bullet shape teapot. Lovely plain shape with a straight spout and very small size. This is a very early teapot. Although a few 17th century teapots exist there is very little likelihood of finding one before 1710. The earlier the teapot the smaller they tend to be as tea was a very expensive commodity. Contains 400 ml, 14 fluid ounces which is about 2 cups. Weight 298 grams, 9.5 troy ounces. Height 11.5 cms. Spread 18.5 cms. London 1723. Maker Gabriel Sleath.
