Description


This exceptional antique George III English sterling silver teapot has a circular rounded form onto a circular spreading foot.


The surface of the body is embellished with profuse chased floral and foliate ornamentation, subdivided with tiered leaf textures.


One side of this impressive silver teapot bears a scroll bordered cartouche which displays a contemporary bright cut engraved coat of arms*.


This antique silver teapot is fitted with a hallmarked domed hinged cover embellished with a continuation of chased decoration in a swirl design, in addition to an applied rope twist decorated border to the rim.


The cover retains the exceptional cast sterling silver finial modelled in the form of a matured flower, securing to the interior with a screw fitment.


This exceptional example of antique teaware retains the original carved painted wood handle, featuring a plain scrolling thumbpiece.


Both the cast sterling silver sockets of the handle are embellished with exceptional scrolling leaf decoration accented with a floral motif to the lower terminal.


The teapot is fitted with an exceptional cast swan necked spout ornamented with a bearded mask design to the lower portion accented with layered leaf designs in junction with the body.


This impressive piece of Georgian silverware was crafted by the renowned London silversmith William Burwash.


* This coat of arms pertains to the family of Bacon, Baronets of Redgrave and of Mildenhall in the County of Suffolk. This piece will have been either in the possession of Sir Edmund Bacon (the 8th Baronet of Redgrave and 9th Baronet of Mildenhall) or his eldest son Sir Edmund Bacon. The family descends from Sir Nicholas Bacon, Knight who during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I had custody of the Great Seal of the Realm.
