Late Victorian silver teapot of panelled, can-shaped form and decorated with fine hand engraving around the entire body and cover. The cover is fitted with a flush-mounted jeweller's hinge - a sign of quality - and is surmounted by a detachable finial. Both finial and handle are ebonised fruitwood, probably apple or pear.

The teapot pot has bead pattern borders and is engraved on one side within a circular shield with entwined initials. The other side features a vacant shield without engraving.

With a capacity of more than nine teacups, which is more than a litre, this teapot is robust and big enough to be used daily at breakfast or tea time. Most importantly, it pours beautifully without dripping.
