An extremely fine George III Teapot made in London in 1795 by Peter & Ann Bateman.


The Teapot is of a large oval form with a reeded base and rim. The bottom of the main body is engraved with an unusual band of foliate motifs on a scratch engraved ground. The upper section displays an unusual engraved band of feathery scrolls, trailing foliage and beautiful flower heads in ovals. The condition of the engraving is excellent and has been executed by a very experienced hand. The fruit wood handle is attached to the two reeded silver handle sockets and the domed cover is engraved with bright cut designs and a band of foliate motifs. The cover terminates in a fruitwood finial, with silver urn top. The straight spout is also unusually decorated with a bright cut star finial. The Teapot is in excellent condition and is fully marked on the base and with the sterling mark on the cover.
