This piece would have been a most important part of the Tea Equipage upstairs in the drawing room. Taking tea was an important social tradition at this date, as tea was so very expensive and confirmed social position and status.
The Arms are those of the Ellis family of Kiddal Hall, County Yorkshire. James Goodwin was a quality maker whose mark was first entered in March, 1710. He had workshops in Foster Lane and was presumably dead by December 2nd 1729, when Elizabeth Goodwin entered her mark, taking over the business.
