The upper and lower portions of the teapot are ornamented with a band of bright cut engraved undulating decoration.


The teapot is fitted with a hallmarked flush hinged octagonal shaped cover embellished with a triangular segmented design to the surface; the flush hinge indicates the fine quality of this piece.


The cover retains the original carved pear wood and silver finial, secured to the interior of the cover with a screw fitting wing nut.


This teapot has been fitted with a replacement carved pear wood handle in keeping with the style of the Victorian era; this item has been priced accordingly.


The panelled spout is embellished to either side with subtle bright cut engraved motifs.


This antique teapot is a fine and unusual example of its type.
