Description


This exceptional antique George I Britannia silver* bachelor teapot has a plain panelled pear shaped form.


The surface of the teapot is plain and unembellished.


This antique teapot retains the original hinged hallmarked domed panelled cover surmounted with the original impressive silver panelled baluster style finial.


This fine bachelor teapot is fitted with a shaped carved pear wood handle with a carved scroll style thumbpiece, scrolling lower terminal and plain cylindrical sockets.


This Georgian teapot has a panelled curved spout with a hinged V-shaped flap to the lip.


The teapot sits to the original hallmarked stand and spirit burner.


The stand is fitted with cast scrolling legs onto the original compressed circular pear wood feet.


The integrated spirit burner has a circular push fit cover.


The teapot stand is fitted with a chain terminating with a hemispherical extinguisher.


Both the teapot and the stand were crafted by Jacob Margas in 1717; these items will have been crafted in the same year but due to the hallmarking system the stand is struck with the date letter ‘A’ and the teapot bears ‘B’.


This Georgian teapot and stand is an exceptional and rare example of its type.


* Britannia Silver - The Britannia silver standard of 958 (95.84% of fine silver), denoted by the icon of the seated Britannia holding an oval shield, was introduced by William III in 1697. This was to indicate the slightly higher standard of silver from sterling silver standard of 925 (92.5% of fine silver).


Date: 1717

Full Britannia hallmarks struck to the underside of the teapot and stand are all very clear; the lion head mark to the stand is rubbed and the Britannia mark to the stand shows signs of wear, these hallmarks can be considered as very clear, in keeping with age.
