Boston 1890 Teapot Stylized Vine Embossed Floral Victorian Silver Plate, Antique For Sale
Victorian Silverplated Teapot
Victorian Silverplated Teapot
This sweet little antique silverplated teapot is marked Boston Silver Co. This company was in business from 1890-1910 and listed their address as “715 Washington St., Room 4, Boston” on their printed trade cards. The pot stands 5 ¾” (14.5 cm) tall and has a capacity of 4 cups. The design on this piece features an embossed stylized floral vine at the top. The spout and handle are embossed as well with bold foliate designs. This beautiful serving piece has no monogram or inscription.
Condition: This teapot is in good condition overall, with a brilliant shine and only very slight wear. There are a couple of minor dings and dents on the sides of the pot (see detail photos). The interior floor has wear to the silver layer. There is very slight wear here and there on the handle and spout, but nothing noticeable. The lower handle was bumped at one time and is slightly pushed inward, but this is also not noticeable. The finial on the lid was pushed downward a bit as well. The lid has a couple of tiny insignificant dings and a tiny “divot” on one edge. There are some light scratches on the piece as would be expected from normal use. The hinge works well with only a tiny bit of “play” in it (wobble).
