This wonderful Dutch miniature silver teapot was beautifully made, all decoration is hand chased. The hinges of the handle are formed as faces as was often done on early Dutch pieces. It has a true spout that will pour liquid, not just an applied decoration. Although it appears to be have made in the early 19th century, it has been suggested that this may have actually been made in the late 19th century. The town and `10' marks on this piece may be pseudo hallmarks. The sword purity mark (.833 fineness) on the base, handle and lid was used from 1814 until 1905. Overall condition is very good, no dents or damage. The teapot measures approximately 1.75" in diameter, 1.75" to the top of the handle. This little piece has good weight at about 30 grams.
