English silver lustre teapot, c.1820

English silver lustre glazed pottery teapot with faceted, beaded & gadrooned body, stands 5.75 inches high and is 9.5 inches long.

One of the most common inventive repairs is a teapot spout replacement tip or shield. This repair was made by wrapping a single triangular shaped piece of tin and soldiering in place.

An almost exact example is shown with a more elaborate eagle’s head handle.
