The shaped rounded border has an applied rim ornamented with an undulating bright cut engraved design.


This impressive stand is supported by four impressive bracket style feet.


This exceptional Newcastle made teapot and stand, made by the renowned silversmiths John Langlands I & John Robertson I, is probably one of the finest examples of their type you could hope to acquire.


* This coat of arms pertains to the family name Forster/Foster.

Condition


This antique teapot is a very good gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

There is natural crazing to the ivory handle, as to be expected in keeping with age; this does not detract from the aesthetically pleasing appearance or integrity of the piece.

The bright cut engraved decoration is all very crisp.

The fine set of full hallmarks struck to the underside of each piece are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Georgian silverware.
