A very decorative item of copper ware by a renowned Birmingham maker, William Soutter and Sons, particularly known for their arts and crafts pieces.
This attractive teapot dates from around 1900 -1910 and is marked on the base with the Soutter mark and 4 Gill for the volume it holds. It has an elegant, classical shape with beaded detail under the rim. The arts and crafts influence is notable with the design of the handle which has a turned ebonised wooden insulator.
The teapot has a tinned interior and stands 5 1/2 inches high, and is 9 3/4 inches wide. It weighs 624g and is in good antique, unpolished condition with just a couple of very small dents and small chip at the top of the wooden handle. This is a great item to add to any collection.
