A heavy over-the-top teapot by Rogers Bros. that epitomizes the angularity and highly decorated objects of the Victorian era.

The body of the large, heavy pot is decorated with etched floral bouquet, with the name “Boynton” etched on the front panel on one side. The teapot has a very pronounced spout extending from the lower quarter of the body. The handle has two round discs which separate the handle from the heat. This allows the hot teapot to be picked up comfortably when hot, without burning your hands. The lid is topped by a tall, round finial. The body rests on four elaborate disc feet and rests flat on a surface.

The pot could be used for pouring either coffee or tea, but was likely intended for tea. It does have a mesh covering the entrance of the spout to prevent tea leaves from entering.

A round brass plaque on the reads “ROGERS & BRO. TRIPLE PLATE”. This encircles a hand holding lightning bolts.

MEASUREMENTS

10 ¾” (27.3 cm) tall x 9” (22.9 cm) long x 5” 12.7 cm) diameter. Weighs 2 lb 4.5 oz (1035 g)

CONDITION

There are no breaks or cracks. There is one slight dent above the “on” by the Boynton name. The teapot only hints at the silver as most of it has been polished off over time.

A wonderful fun over the top teapot to add to many decors from shabby chic to industrial metal.
