This fine and unusual Victorian sterling silver teapot has an octagonal panelled form.

Each panel is embellished with bright cut engraved suspended laurel swag decoration.

The central panels to either side of the teapot incorporate bright cut engraved oval husk bordered cartouche, one remains vacant and the other displays a bright cut engraved crest of on a cap of maintenance purpure a dexter arm armed from the shoulder resting on the elbow and holding in the hand a sceptre all proper*.

The upper and lower portions of the teapot are ornamented with a band of bright cut engraved undulating decoration.

The teapot is fitted with a hallmarked flush hinged octagonal shaped cover embellished with a triangular segmented design to the surface; the flush hinge indicates the fine quality of this piece.

The cover retains the original carved pear wood and silver finial, secured to the interior of the cover with a screw fitting wing nut.

This teapot has been fitted with a replacement carved pear wood handle in keeping with the style of the Victorian era; this item has been priced accordingly.

The panelled spout is embellished to either side with subtle bright cut engraved motifs.

This antique teapot is a fine and unusual example of its type.

* This crest is that of the baronetcy family of Bruce of Airth and Stenhouse, Sterling.

The strong probability is this crest is that of Sir William Cunningham Bruce, 9th Baronet of Airth and Stenhouse.
