Egyptian Sterling Silver Teapot With Presentation Case. Total Weight 775 Grams For Sale

Egyptian Sterling Silver Teapot With Presentation Case. Total Weight 775 Grams

Vintage Egyptian .900 Silver Teapot With Presentation Case. Total weight is 775 grams (27.3 ounces). Beautiful Egyptian Silver Teapot. Measures 13 1/2" tall and 10" wide from spout to handle. The teapot is in excellent condition and has a beautiful floral design. The teapot comes with a velvet lined dark blue presentation case. Egyptian silver is not sterling (.925), but is very close. The hallmark stamp on the bottom shows that the silver is .900 (90%) from the Cairo Assay Office. We have not been able to determine the Arabic character representing the date mark (far right). Based on the quality of the workmanship and design, we believe this teapot was made in the 1930's but cannot be sure.Interesting back story on this piece. This teapot was presented from the Chief of Staff of the Egyptian Armed Forces to a high ranking US Official in 2009 - possibly Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, or perhaps even President Obama. Since US officials are not allowed to keep gifts from foreign dignataries they are turned over to the General Service Administration (GSA) which is the 'landlord' of all real and tangible US property. GSA in turn disposes of gifts received through public sales. I purchased this teapot in a GSA public sale in 2011 for its silver content. Shipping is $18.95 to any US destination and will be shipped insured. We will ship internationally, cost based on your country. See our other great collectibles in our store and thanks for looking!
