Large antique Indian silver teapot

£0 Shipping to

A most impressive and substantial handmade antique Indian silver teapot, beautifully hand chased in the typical style of the Cutch silversmiths. The chasing features a profusion of jasmine flowers, scrolling foliage and tea leaves, set against a mottled background - all design motifs of the Cutch style. Its capacity for approximately eight cups of tea, makes this a perfect candidate for a breakfast teapot.

A silver teapot pours like no other. 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 silver teapot qualifies for an ivory exemption certificate
If required, the ivory parts may be replicated and replaced with an ivory substitute at no additional cost.
