Italian Sterling Silver Teapot - Vintage Circa 1990


A magnificent, exceptional, fine and impressive vintage Italian sterling silver teapot modelled in the form of a camel; an addition to our silver teaware collection

SKU C4295

This magnificent vintage cast Italian sterling silver teapot has been realistically modelled in the form of a seated camel.

The surface of the teapot is embellished with details reproducing the camel's fur coat and anatomical features.

The medial portion of the camel is ornamented with a large bulbous tied sack design.

This Italian silver teapot retains the original plain domed hinged cover surmounted with a plain oval ring-loop style finial.

This fine teapot retains the original handle modelled in the form of a male figure, attired in a turban and tied robe, tying a pack to the camel's hump.

This magnificent teapot has a uniquely curved spout comprised of the camel's collared neck; the pouring lip is produced by the camel's open mouth.

The hallmarks struck to the underside of this teapot includes:

Silver quality/purity mark: 925 (sterling, 925/1000).

Maker's registration: 1763 MI (Untraced, Milano)

NOTE: This Karawan teapot is a reproduction of a glazed and gilded earthenware teapot made by Moore Bros.; an example of this can be found in the famous Victoria and Albert Museum of Practical Geology. This teapot bears poetic Oriental influence from nature and the desert; the Orient recreated by the Romantics incorporated enchanting and adventurous fantasy symbolism. This teapot proffers the promised moment of rest rewarded by hot tea after enduring the hostile and sun-filled jouneys taken.

Maker: Unknown

Origin: Milan, Italy

This vintage silver teapot is a magnificent gauge of silver, magnificent quality and in magnificent condition.
