English Tilting Tea Pot

About

Charming English Regency style tilting tea kettle on a lamp stand. The kettle is delicately chased with a swag-like design, lovely repoussé work decorates the center of the barrel in the form of sunbursts and crests. The hinged lid has a finial shaped like an acorn and is fastened with a leaf. Four extensions, two on either side of the kettle allow the kettle to sit in place on the raised lamp stand. The supports, gracefully pierced with floral motifs cradle the teapot and extend downward to hold the oil burner. Four claw feet support the stand above the table so as to protect the surface from the heat. No need to lift the "hot" teapot. Just hold the handle and tilt forward to pour. The kettle will "rock" on its stand. The spirit of tea time was always indelibly associated with England. As far back as the mid-1600s tea time was part of the simple as well as the most elegant gatherings. Afternoon tea time continued its popularity during the reign of Queen Victoria. It was performed with dignity, style, and care. Because of he high cost of tea, the beverage was infused (heated and brewed) at the table to prevent waste. This explains the introduction of the teapot with the lamp stand. Sheffield, England.
