Condition


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

The interior of the teapot has been professionally cleaned and is ready for use.

There is some crazing to the ivory handle as to be expected, in keeping with age; this does not affect the integrity of the piece.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the base and lion passant mark to the interior of the cover, as to be expected, are all very clear.


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