The handle and spout are also ornate, with elaborate scrolled shaping and design. The teapot stands on four, little cabriole legs. The silver plate has worn through time and acquired a strong patina, which enhances the appearance of this. There are some tiny holes in the silver plate, which are camouflaged by the patterns. It also looks as if the spout has had some repair work done to it at some point.
The base is marked: ROBERTS & CO SHOREHAM WORKS SHEFFIED. This will make a fantast display piece.
