Georgian, George II, silver coffee pot. Of tapering and cylindrical form, later decorated with foliage & scrolls. The ogee domed cover with vase shaped finial. The double scroll handle and spout capped with acanthus leaf decoration. A vacant cartouche to one side.
This coffee pot handle has ivory heat spacers, so please check with me first if considering shipping outside of the U.K.
In excellent order with light surface wear, commensurate with age. Free of dents, splits and creases. A little clouding of the silver to the the top of the coffee pot.
Hallmaked to the underside of the base for London 1735 by Gabriel Sleath. Further part hallmarked to the inside of the cover with the lion passant and the rubbed maker's mark (only the S is visible). The handle is a Victorian replacement, with the original most probably being wooden and commonly replaced during the lifespan of these early pots. Mostly the replacement handles are wooden, or ebonised, but the owner at the time opted to have a Georgian style scroll handle made in silver. The mark for the handle appears to be that of Richard Sibley II. There is no date letter, only the duty mark of Queen Victoria's Head and the lion passant.
Approximate weight is 785 grams or 25 troy ounces.
Approximate dimensions are 23 cm height, 21 cm length and 11 cm base diameter.
