This is a Georgian sterling silver small size teapot. The hallmarks identify it as being sterling silver, made in London England in 1748/49. The makers hallmark is too smeared to identify. It is a classic 18th century form, with chased ribbing around the base and an elegant applied pouring spout. The hinged lid is beautifully made with a twisted final. The sweeping handle appears to be ebony, and is missing the lower pin. All of this sits on a beautifully turned pedestal foot. Underneath the pouring spout is very faint engraving which is very difficult to read. The teapot weighs 12 ounces, is 8 inches tall and is 3 3/4 inches at its greatest diameter. There are a few small dents to the ribbing around the base. # S005
