This is a unique George II silver bullet teapot!! Made by Peter Archambo who was free in 1720 and his mark entered 1722-1739. The date of the pot is C1720 and was marked at the time with the makers mark struck 4 times – it was then fully hallmarked in Exeter in 1754 and the duty would have been paid, a very interesting piece and not something you come across very often at all and the most unusual point is that the Exeter assay office didn’t remove Archambo’s makers marks so that the history of this very rare teapot is known!
It measures 8 inches handle to spout by approx 2.25 inches wide and is 4.75 inches tall, it is of plain form and free from engravings, it has a straight spout, a flush hinge and a scrolled pear wood handle and finial. It is hallmarked under the base with 4 makers marks and a full set of marks for Exeter 1754, it is in very good condition and weighs ounces or grams and is the only one of it’s find!!
