Antique early 19th-century (1802) silver teapot

A fine George III sterling silver teapot by Crispin Fuller,

of oval bellied form, part fluted sides and reeded rim. This ovoid shape is characteristics of Crispin Fuller teapots of the earlier, pre-1800 style. 

It has an original ebony elegant scroll handle and an ebony ovoid finial, in keeping with the shape of the teapot.

It has a nice flush (concealed) hinge. There is some discolouration at the hinge from an old repair, which was well executed and neat. It is only minor and has not affected the working of the hinge. 

Fully hallmarked on the base. The inside of the lid is also marked with a matched George III sterling mark. 

A vacant cartouche on each side of the teapot, they are made up of bright-cut foliated borders.
