Silver Teapot History
The first recorded silver teapot was made in England around 1670 as a gift for the East India Company from George, Lord Berkley. This particular teapot was very typical of the period and was similar in shape to a coffee or chocolate pot.
This teapot, however was small in volume due to the high cost of tea. There were two other silver teapots made around the same time (1670 and 1685) which were both comprised in a melon shaped; their compressed form made them no more than 6 inches high. These examples were most likely modelled on the Chinese earthenware pot which was increasing in popularity across Europe at the time.

Silver Coffee Pot History
Coffee pots crafted in silver were first used in the 17th century. From this point onwards, English and American silversmiths began to create both classic and innovative forms of silver coffee pots. The beginning of the 18th century saw the increase in popularity of hot beverages such as coffee, which influenced the mass production of coffee pots.
