Antique Old Sheffield Silver Plate Coffee Tea Pot, 19th Century, Wooden Handle, Fused


Shipping to United States: $11.75

This is a terrific Antique 'Old Sheffield' Silver Plate Coffee Tea Pot. This 19th Century piece has a Wooden Handle in remarkable condition. This piece is not the more contemporary Electroplate. The beauty of Old Sheffield was the Fused Plating process and Hand Finished Details. This delightful Serving Vessel is fully functional for Entertaining. This piece has no markings, not uncommon for this type of Silver Plate.

This piece is in excellent vintage condition at 200 y/o. This piece is light on wear, though there is a subtle scratch near the base as seen in the 5th image. There are a couple of repairs to the bottom interior as well as under the base. Please look closely at the photos to appreciate all the fantastic details, as well as to best understand overall condition.

Pot measures 7.25" tall at knob as well as handle top, 9" from spout to handle and 4" diameter at the base.

Here is a short on Old Sheffield, though there is much info online on this short lived Silver Plate Process. "The use of "Sheffield plate" began in 1742 when Thomas Boulsover, a Sheffield cutler (bladesmith), discovered that a sheet of silver fused to a piece of copper could then be rolled or hammered out without fracturing the bond.

This made possible the use of "plated" base metal, which appeared, outwardly, to be silver, but as the silver "skin" could be only a small proportion of the gauge of the metal the saving in expense was considerable and objects made from the product looked exactly like sterling silver, because the applied 'plate' was indeed sterling."
