A silver teapot imbues a spirit of ceremony to the sharing of a cup of tea with someone; it brings grace and beauty to the table, and Irish silver teapots are among the most beautiful in the world; early examples tend to be simple and plain in design, and made of heavy gauge silver. Towards the middle of the 18th century they became more ornate and decorative, as the Rococo period was at its height. In the Neoclassical era, simplicity was once more in fashion, albeit with some patterning. Over the years we have had some incredibly rare pieces in our shop, and are always happy to talk to you about adding to (or starting!) your collection.
