This is a good quality antique Russian silver teapot featuring a compressed round body, relief lozenge-shaped panels and a pull-off lid with an ivory finial. This pot serves approximately 3-4 cups of tea. Although the maker is not known the assay marks are for Vasilyevich Avdeyev who was hallmarking between 1852 and 1863 in Moscow.

Pre-revolutionary Russian silver was far superior to anything made after the Russian Revolution (1917-1923) and good pieces in fine condition are highly desirable.

A silver teapot pours like no other and sterling silver is the perfect material for making 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.

Note: Under the rules of the UK government's Ivory Act 2018, this antique Russian silver teapot qualifies for an ivory exemption certificateIf required, the ivory parts may be replicated and replaced with an ivory substitute at no additional cost.
