George III Irish silver teapot, made in Dublin in 1785 by James Kennedy, who worked on Chancery Lane, at the side of Dublin Castle. With typical neoclassical bright cutting, and an unusual rippled bodyshape, it has a long straight spout, lightly engraved with foliage decoration, and a flat hinged lid bearing a Chinoiserie finial in the form of a Chinese man holding what appears to be a flagon. Finial is attached by a silver nut on the inside. The lid has maker’s mark and Hibernia on the inside, and the main body has a full set of hallmarks on the base, in excellent condition.
It weighs 557 grams, and is just over 25 cm in total length.
