John Round silver-plated teapot

£100.00

Product description

Exceptionally elegant antique electro-plated silver teapot from John Round & Sons.
The piece is thoroughly hallmarked and remains in incredible condition.
Established in 1847, the John Round firm started as a tiny workshop attached to the founder's house on Tudor Street in Sheffield, England. It would not be long before the company would expand to an extremely successful venture. After forming a partnership with his son Edwin, the firm was renamed John Round & Son.
This coffee pot was manufactured by Joseph Ridge & Co., after JR&S was amalgamated with Ridge, Allcard & Co.
The teapot has a wide belly that tapers slightly upward toward a lightly scalloped edge around the lid. It stands on four tapered feet which prevents any scratching to the piece or underlying surfaces.
Two ox-bone accents wrapping around the elegant handle (this insulates the handle from heat), as well as an ox-bone "button" on the top of the lid.
There a number of clearly stamped maker's mark on the underside: "Half 4 Pint"; followed by a John Round logo reading "All the Round"; "JR&S" in respective square shapes; "EPNS"; "Warranted Hard Soldered", "32476" and the English Registry number "Rd No 52007". This numerical registry system was implemented by the English government in 1884; it replaced the previous "diamond code" system that had been used from 1842 to 1883.
The number 52007 indicates that the piece was manufactured between the years 1886 and 1887.
Measurements: 18 cm tall, 22.6 cm long (handle to spout), 13 cm at widest point; weight: 716 grams/1.58 pounds.
