A George III sterling silver teapot
London 1790 by John Robins
The body of the oval teapot structured by vertical, pointed ribs and engraved on the upper rim as well as on parts of the slightly dome-shaped lid. The handle made of dark wood, probably boxwood, the lid terminated by a disc-shaped knob. The tapering spout analogously decorated by longitudinal ribs as well as to the sockets of the handle.
An exceptional Georgian English sterling silver teapot from the end of the 18th century which due to the simplicity of its design, appears close as modern still today.
