Victorian Silver Teapot
Added on 23 February 2021
YEAR OF MANUFACTURE: 1891
ORIGIN: London, England
MAKER: Josiah Williams & Co, London, circa 1897-1914
Classic can-shaped antique Victorian silver teapot, hand engraved in fine and sharp detail and bearing a family crest within a shield. The teapot has a detachable finial and a flush hinged lid; a mark of quality. The handle has insulators to prevent the handle from getting too hot.
A silver teapot pours like no other and sterling silver is the perfect material for fashioning teapots:
No other material can be fashioned into such elegant and detailed forms, reflect light as beautifully, and a perfectly formed silver teapot spout will never drip.
Second only to diamonds, silver has the highest thermal conductivity of any material, meaning that tea leaves can be brewed at a higher temperature than in any other teapot, allowing the tea leaves to fully release their flavours.
That same high thermal conductivity means a silver teapot will retain heat and keep tea hot for much longer.
Unlike porcelain and ceramic teapots, silver is sturdy and long-lasting, does not shatter and the occasional dent can be debruised.
