This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver teapot has a melon shaped form.

The upper portion of the teapot is encompassed with an impressive band of chased decorated matte trellis decoration accented with a feature scroll and scallop shell design with a pensile leaf motif to each panel.

The lower bulbous portion of this Victorian teapot is plain and embellished with a contemporary bright cut engraved martial coat of arms displaying on the dexter a chevron engrailed between three griffins and on the sinister a lion rampant collared.

This impressive coat of arms is surmounted with the crest of a demi-griffin and all above the motto 'Instaurator Ruinæ' - A repairer of ruin*.

This antique silver teapot is fitted with a plain hallmarked hinged cover surmounted with the impressive hallmarked floral and foliate shaped finial, securing to the interior with a wing nut.

The rim of the cover is encompassed with an applied moulded border paralleling the panelled form.

The fine and impressive, hallmarked opposing scroll handle is ornamented with a large, chased decorated single leaf design which is incorporated into the shaped thumbpiece and upper terminal.

The fine and impressive swan necked spout is embellished with a scroll decorated socket encompassing the fluted terminals and accented with simplified leaf textures.

The upper portion of the spout is ornamented with chased scroll bordered trellis, shell and leaf decoration identical to that of the body.

The plain domed spreading foot of the teapot is encircled with the same shaped rim as that to the cover.

* The crest and dexter portion of the coat of arms and motto pertains to the Clan Forsyth; the heraldic reference to the sinister portion has not been determined.
