1983/19: A good late 18th century SILVER TEAPOT and STAND by the famous silver-smith, Robert Hennell. The teapot, with its "bright-cut" decoration and long slender spout is typical of the period, as is the original oval stand. Interestingly, the stand is fitted with a set of four cast silver wheels all hallmarked ~ a feature not seen before. Both teapot and stand are engraved with a fine Coat of Arms and everything is hallmarked for London 1794. 10.5ins long. *The Hennell dynasty of highly regarding silversmiths, was founded by Robert's father David, but is is the work of Robert Hennell I (1796-1844) whose work is most keenly sought-after. c.1794
