George III style silver bachelor teapot

George III style silver bachelor teapot


Antique bachelor silver teapot in the George III style which was popular circa 1810 and with a capacity for four cups of tea. The pot is decorated with a classic leaf, shell gadroon applied border and band of vertical fluting.

The bachelor tea service is a charming set of antique silver, being simply a smaller version of a full-size tea set, but intended for one person. Occasionally mistaken as part of a child's tea service, they are deliberately petite and were created long before the advent of the tea bag!

A silver teapot pours like no other
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.
