We are pleased to offer this fine English George III teapot.
Fully hallmarked. Maker rubbed. Appears to be for Jonathan Hayne in 1820. First listed 1808.
A very successful silversmith. So much so that he had at least six apprentices under him from 1822 to 1827. One or perhaps two for a master was the norm.
The circular form with rarely seen bats wing fluting rising from base. Even more unique the upper rim with bat's wing as well.
Gadroon overhang rim
Original ebony and sterling bell cap finial. Conforming leaf cap handle.
The teapot supported perfectly atop winged vine and florette lions paw feet.
This 1820 teapot is 10 1/2 inches handle to spout and 5 1/2 tall.
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.
