You are looking at a gorgeous Sheffield plate tea or coffee pot, which is highly engraved. I am showing this with fabric hydrangeas, since this is being sold more as a decorative piece than a useable tea/coffee pot, due to its condition.
As you can see, there is ornate engraving & raised flowers, along with the initial P. Each side is the same as far as the design. There is a raised leaf design on top.
The bottom reads: T * W, Sheffield Plate, with three numbers below this, which are partially rubbed off.
The condition is poor to fair for using, but wonderful if used as a decorative piece. The imperfections are: the lid is missing the piece which opens the lid, thus the small hole/indentation. Of course the lid is easily opened by lifting the raised leaves. The spout has large areas of indentations. There may be a small ding on the back, on one of the flowers, but I can’t tell; it may have been made that way since the flowers are raised. The plate has a wonderful patina.
The tea/coffee pot is approximately 9 ½” tall, to the top of the raised leaves.
As you can see by my pictures, this is an absolutely gorgeous decorative antique pot. It would look great in any room, from Shabby to Chic. You will love it!
