Antique teapot with ebonised handle
Pretty teapot in a Victorian style, with ebonised handle and top finial on the lid. Marked underneath E.P.B.M. (s / n), with a tankard, and no. 1498. E.P.B.M stands for Electroplated Britannia metal, which has the appearance of silver and reacts (polishes) like silverplate, but is in reality a pewter alloy. The flat body has been engraved with a simple yet elegant scrolling pattern, the spout with a small acanthus leaf to the top. The black handle and finial are smooth and whole.
Made between 1880-1920, but considering the style, it's most likely to date pre-1900's.
Good with some tarnishing. The inside is quite clean. It pours super smooth!
11 inches long, 6-1/2 inches wide, 4-1/2 inches tall at the highest point on the handle.
Takes ca 1 liter of fluid.
