The teapot supported perfectly atop winged vine and florette lions paw feet.

Thick heavy guage sterling weighs 28 standard ounces, less handle and finial.
Exceptionally thick heavy guage weighs 30 (standard) ounces.
Hallmarked as shown.
Rich, lustreous sterling patina throughout. Original ebony (?) finial and handle retain rich even surface. Small dent to handle where finial hits when opened quickly. Tiny strap behind one foot, must look under to see and numerous tiny very shallow pinhead bumps along shoulder, more to one side.
For the discerning collector of the finest English silver. An exceptional George III sterling silver bats wing fluted lion paw teapot.
