A fine antique sterling silver bullet shape teapot. Lovely plain shape with a straight spout and very small size. This is a very early teapot. Although a few 17th century teapots exist there is very little likelihood of finding one before 1710. The earlier the teapot the smaller they tend to be as tea was a very expensive commodity. Weight 298 grams, 9.5 troy ounces. Height 11.5 cms. Spread 18.5 cms. London 1723. Maker Gabriel Sleath.
This rare little silver teapot is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. Stamped underneath with a full and clear set of English silver hallmarks, the lid has the lion mark underneath. There is some fine scratching on the body as would be expected and a couple of very minor dinks. This pot has been water tested and doesn’t leak. It pours beautifully.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
