A very good quality silver George III silver coffee pot of plain baluster form with swan neck spout with cast anthemion design. The domed lid with flame finial. One side engraved with an armorial depicting bears and gryphons within a floral decorated shield beneath a crown. Original double C-scroll fruit wood handle. The whole standing on a stepped circular foot.
Marked for London 1763 by Thomas Whipham and Charles Wright. The lid marked with the lion passant .
A very attractive coffee pot in absolutely original condition with no damage or repair. The gauge of the silver is very good and the lid fits well with almost no movement to the hinge. The handle is firm with no cracks, chips or splits. A few very minor bruises to the bulbous part of the body. The hallmarks are rubbed with the makers mark considerably worn. Lovely colour and patina.
