Small Arts & Crafts Silver Teapot*
Lovely little hand made silver teapot with a Birmingham hallmark for 1907.
Standing off a circular base the shape flares out before turning in and tapering gently upwards.
The body and spout are of riveted construction and the seams are sound and watertight.
With a lid that neatly overhangs the top of the pot and closes evenly all round.
The handle and the finial on the lid appear to be made of bakelite or something very similar but we haven’t tested the material as there seems no need. In any event, its insulation properties work very well.
There is a maker’s mark which is unfortunately rather rubbed, but it could well be that of James Fenton, then of Great Hampton Street, Birmingham
The teapot has a capacity of a fraction under 3/4 of a pint or around 420 ml. and pours cleanly. Height is approximately 11.5 cm.
