A very rare George IV Bachelor Teapot made in Dublin in 1826 by Richard Sawyer.


The Teapot stands on four ball feet and the main body is decorated with a band of bold lobes. The upper section displays a most unusual band of scrolls interspersed with shamrocks, thistles and roses, the emblems of Ireland, Scotland and England. The slightly domed cover terminates in a fruitwood finial and is engraved with a contemporary Crest. This piece has a harp shaped handle and is very well marked on the base and the cover. Bachelor teapots are rare and were smaller versions of the full sized pots, made for the use of one person. This is, however, the first time we have seen an Irish example.
