    Why does a silver teapot crack

    It would be a rare occasion that a silver teapot would crack. If yours has suffered damage it may be worth speaking to a silversmith local to yourself for advice and potential repair.

    The item on the right is a Queen Anne style teapot.
    Queen Anne teapots are a very specific style, which is reproduced frequently, and has been in fashion over many eras. In the Edwardian era, it was common for teapots to be created in the Queen Anne style, although Queen Anne herself was actually reigning in 1702.

    The most common feature of the Queen Anne Teapot is the delicate fluting which often surrounds the body of the teapot. The motif of the Queen Anne style was to use vertical lines to draw the attention to the height of the piece, and with silverware in particular, this results in simple embossed fluting to the lower half of the body, and delicate ornamentation.

    Hope this helps

    If silver is a better conductor of heat than ceramic, does it not stand to reason that when you pour heated water into the silver teapot the water will cool faster than in a ceramic teapot? That is, the heat of the water will pass through the silver to the surrounding air more easily. That’s why touching a silver pot is more dangerous than touching a ceramic pot, as you correctly warn.

    As to imparting flavor, it may be that silver is neutral in water (does not combine) but the interior of my antique silver teapot has a distinctive metallic aroma that I imagine will affect the flavor of the tea I plan to brew in it. Do you know a way to remove that odor harmlessly?

    Thanks for your help.

      Hi Kenneth,

      In terms of which would cool faster, we would have to conduct an experiment. Will update you once we have done this :). We recommend thoroughly drying the inside, brew the tea and enjoy. We sell many teapots on a daily/ weekly basis with very positive feedback. Give it a try 🙂
