A George III Silver Teapot and Stand London 1792 By Robert Hennell
A Georgian silver teapot of oval form, very finely decorated with prick work and bright cut engraving in two bands about the body and lid and a smaller band on the spout. The domed lid with a finial in the form of an open flower. Fruit wood handle with thumb-piece. One side with a vacant shaped cartouche and the other side with contemporary engraved script initials.
The stand/tray of matching design and decoration. Standing on four tapering and reeded legs. The stand/tray is engraved with the same cartouche and initials as the pot.
Both pieces fully hallmarked to the underside for London 1792 by Robert Hennell. The lid also carries the lion passant and the finial also marked the same.
This is a marvellous teapot on its original stand. Beautifully decorated and in absolutely original condition with no repair. Original fruit wood handle in excellent order. Robert Hennell was a master silversmith and this is a great example of his talent. Superb colour and patina.
