Literature: Early teapots were of small capacity because of the rarity of tea. Although there are a few 17th century teapots in existence, there is little likelihood of finding one dating before 1710. The earlier the teapot the smaller they tend to be as tea was a very expensive commodity until the middle of the reign of George I.
This rare little silver teapot is in very good condition. Good colour. Stamped underneath with a full and clear set of English silver hallmarks, the lid has the lion and makers mark. This pot has been water tested and doesn't leak. Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
