one of the coolest teapots I’ve seen! I just love this one! The Victorians could not be undone in their quest to find the most unusual and avant-garde designs to create their most amusing treasures. The lost tombs of the Pharaohs were discovered in the early 1800's and were an amazing curiosity to the people of the time. This teapot was created as a reflection of those wonders. This masterpiece is 10" tall x 8 " wide and boasts masks on the feet and handle. Whoever originally owned it, loved it so much it was well-used so some of the antique design has some wear as seen in the photos.
*****This piece is part of the specially attained Philadelphia Main Line estate collection. These dramatic heirloom pieces are very high quality plated silver from the 1800's to early 1900's. These items are prized for their antique craftsmanship, uniqueness and history. Some pieces have some kind of tarnish that can use more polishing than I have given, some pieces can't be polished any further. If there is particular damage I have noted, I will mention it in the post. Please google Cynthia Findlay silver plate to get an idea of historical info and also to compare my prices which are a fraction of her retail prices.
