This is a very rare find! It is a gorgeous antique silver plate teapot on a stand made by the very fine renown silversmiths Topazio. It is hallmarked Topazio Casquinna. Topazio began in 1847, in Portugal, and still makes fine silver products today. This tea pot stands 17" tall and attaches to the base with hinges and little keys in the shape of arrows which also have chains attached. The base has paw feet and the original alcohol burner. The pot has a sturdy handle and the base is ornately chased with a floral motif. Excellent condition for its age. Slight tarnish on the handle.
