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.
