Highly repousse rare teapot with an elegant flower finial. The teapot measures 11 3/4 inches long (over the handle and spout), 6 inches high, and 7 10/16 inches wide. It weighs 26.4 oz. The teapot is in a good condition: there are no dents or major scratches, the handle is firm and the lid closes perfectly well. The teapot does have few minor repairs on its body (see photos). The teapot is hallmarked on the underside with letter A for year 1821, harp crowned and Hibernia for Dublin, Ireland and sterling guarantee, king's head for duty mark and EC for Irish silversmith E. Crofton. This is an absolutely superb and rare example of an excellent Irish workmanship.
