A rare antique sterling silver teapot of small size. Very charming with plain body and engraved decoration to the top. The spout is prettily shaped with acanthus leaf decoration to the tip. Excellent colour. Weight 397 grams, 12.7 troy ounces. Height 12 cms. Spread 20 cms. London 1729. Maker Samuel Margas.

The bullet shaped teapot is probably one of the best known types of the George II period and the lid of this one has a cleverly concealed flush hinge which is difficult to distinguish as the engraver has continued the decoration over this area.
Very good. The bottom of the handle has had an old repair

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.
Early teapots were of small capacity because of the rarity of tea. Although there are a few 17th century teapots in existence, there is little likelihood of finding one dating before 1710. The earlier the teapot the smaller they tend to be as tea was a very expensive commodity until the middle of the reign of George I
