    10136 George II Antique Silver Teapot

    Sold

    An excellent quality antique silver bullet shaped teapot. Lovely plain form with an octagonal panelled spout and wooden handle. The bullet shaped teapot is probably one of the better known types of the George II period and the lid of this one has a cleverly concealed flush hinge which is difficult to distinguish as the engraver has continued the decoration over this area. To the front is a finely engraved cartouche containing the initial “F” in old fashioned cursive script. Contains 450ml. Weight 445 grams, 14.3 troy ounces. Height 11cm. Spread 20cm. London 1735.
