A rare antique provincial silver teapot of oval form with a scroll handle and flush hinge. Excellent quality. To the front and back there are hand engraved swags with ribbon ties with a central armorial (probably those of Thompson quartering Bell of Scotland, impaling Rudd, engraved with a widow's lozenge). There is a band of bright cut engraving to the front. Weight 455 grams 14.6 troy ounces. Height 12.5 cms. Spread 23 cms. Contains 750 ml. York circa 1779-1784. Maker Hampston and Prince, York. Sterling silver.
This fine teapot is in excellent condition with no damage or restoration. The engraving is still crisp. The silver marks are well punched and easy to read. There is no date letter and the lid is unmarked, both of which is not abnormal with provincial silver. The lid shows a faint seam about 1 cm from the flush hinge (see photos) - this is an unusual feature which sometime occurs in provincial pots.

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.
