Description: Sheffield, England
Manufacturer: James Dixon & Sons19th Century
Pewter, silver and alabaster
Dimensions: 18 cm (height), 10 cm (maximal width)
Ornamental, geometric and floral decoration
Beautiful, extraordinary shape
Good condition


This wonderful, extraordinary pewter teapot in a curved form is finely decorated. From the feet to the lid everything is finely ornated. The feet standing on paws, are nestled up to the body of the teapot with floral details. The body is finely geometrically chiseled in horizontal stripes, whereby the ornamental, reticulated handle and spout contrast this in an interesting way. The handle has two small bars made of alabaster at the upper and lower ends. The lid reflects this contrast, this time with a lid lifter in silver in the shape of a flower. Marked below with the maker's mark, several numbers and "VDC". Good condition with original patina.

James Dixon & Sons
The English company from Sheffield started producing silver products in 1806. From 1836 onwards they also produced pewter, nickel and brass articles. They exhibited their silver and metal products at the Great Exhibition in 1851 where they were awarded several prizes.
