A fine antique George III Newcastle sterling silver coffee pot; part of our Newcastle silverware collection
This coffee pot has an ovoid tapering form onto an ovoid pedestal foot.
The body has an embossed convex band with bright cut engraved and pin struck decoration.
There is also pin struck decoration encircling the rim of the body, cover, swan necked spout and base.
The rim and border also have thread decoration.
This coffee pot is fitted with the original domed hallmarked push fit cover which retains the original silver ball finial.
The detachable straining sleeve is also original.
The coffee pot is fitted with the original painted carved pear wood handle.
The handle has plain sockets, the upper socket subtlely embellished with an acanthus leaf decorated terminal.
To either side of the body is a bright cut engraved garland cartouche, one vacant, the other with the engraved in itals
'JJD' to the centre.
This coffee pot is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.
The bright cut engraving is very crisp.
Full hallmarks are struck to the underside of the foot, and part marks, as one would expect, to the rim of the cover.
All the hallmerks are very clear.
Reflections in photography may not give a true representation of this item.
