Pear-shaped Coffee Pots

Saturday, 14 November 2015 17:59

Pear-shaped silver coffee pots were popular in the last half of the 18th century. The George 111 antique silver coffee pots currently displayed on the Warners Antique Silver website are of plain form.

If you should come across a Georgian antique coffee pot which has been chased, you should ensure that the decoration is original. It is quite often the case that chasing has been applied in Victorian or Edwardian times.

An antique silver coffee pot can only pour properly if the spout has been set no lower than the middle of the pot. If a low spout it is likely that the coffee will be sludgy rather than smooth!

A beautiful and perfect wedding present perhaps?

Tasty Tea Caddies

Monday, 09 November 2015 18:28

The name caddy comes from the Maly word cati. Tea was actually sold by the cati, which represents a weight of 0.5 kg.

Caddies originated in the late 17th Century in the reign of King William 111, but they were rare at that time due to the high cost of tea.

Tea caddies became more popular as tea becme cheaper during the 18th century when George 1, George 11, George 111, George 1V, William 1V and Victoria were on the throne. As the tea became cheaper, tea caddies naturally became larger!

Early Georgian examples would normally be oblong in shape and have a pull off cylindrical lid. The lid would serve as a measure for the tea.

The antique silver tea caddy displayed here is one of many on the Warners Antique Silver website. Anyone for tea? Click on the link beneath the tea caddy for full details

Antique silver with engraved crests

Thursday, 27 August 2015 02:00

As antique silver dealers we occasionally come across pieces of silver, such as tankards, cups, silver tea caddies among many other items that are engraved with coats of arms or crests. Identification of these engravings can be time consuming but we thought our readers might be interested in the significance of heraldry.
