This is an exceedingly rare Britannia metal (similar to pewter) teapot by famed maker James Vickers (1737-1809) of Sheffield, England. He was apprenticed with Christopher Greaves at the age of 20. Vickers invented this type of metal and spawned an industry which is ongoing in Sheffield today. Teapots by Vickers are held in museums around the world (Williamsburg, The Victoria and Albert Museum) and they are rarely offered for sale. 11.25" from spout to handle. 7" tall. 7" wide without the spout and handle. This could be as late as 1825. Condition is near perfect with extremely minor microdents that you would expect over the last couple of centuries. Lid opens and closes nicely and sits flush. Evidence of a seam between top and bottom from original construction has zero weakness. This teapot holds 5 cups.
