An exceptional, fine and impressive antique George III English sterling silver teapot with spirit burner made by John Cope Folkard; an addition to our Georgian silver teaware collection.
This exceptional antique George III English sterling silver teapot has an octagonal panelled, pear shaped form.
The lower bulbous portion of the body is embellished with an incurved shaped segment displaying fine chased floral sprays, alternating to each panel.
The anterior panel incorporates an impressive chased decorated scroll bordered cartouche displaying the contemporary engraved crest of a hawk.
The swept upper portion of the teapot features eight further chased decorated panels depicting a single floral head amidst foliate designs.
This exceptional Georgian teapot is fitted with the original hallmarked hinged domed cover, surmounted with the original cast sterling silver finial.
Each panel of the cover is ornamented with further matte incurved segments, accented with a suspended flower head, emanating from the leaf designs to the upper portion.
This exceptional antique teapot is fitted with the original carved pear wood C shaped handle, with a plain scrolling thumbpiece.
This impressive handle is fitted to two octagonal sockets, accented with panels of matte decoration.
The teapot is fitted with an impressive cast sterling silver finial accented with segmented paralleling matte panels to the sides, and a simplified leaf design to the lip.
The teapot detaches from the original hallmarked cast sterling silver stand supported by three impressive scrolling legs, each terminating with tiered octagonal feet.
The upper portion of the stand is encircled with a moulded decorated border to the octagonal rim.
The stand retains the original spirit burner ornamented with chased floral and foliate decoration in incurved borders, reflecting the design to that of the teapot body.
The stand retains the original turned pear wood handle, fitted to a panelled terminal identical to that of the teapot handle.
This antique Georgian silver teapot is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.
The interior of the teapot has been professionally cleaned and is ready for use.
Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the body, in addition to the part hallmarks to the stand and interior of the teapot cover are all very clear.
Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this silver teapot in stand with burner.
