For sale is an English William IV sterling teapot in an unusual square loaf shape by Edward, Edward Jr, John and William Barnard, London, 1834-35, as is. The pot is about 4 3/4 inches tall by about 9 3/8 inches long from spout to handle tip and weighs 613 grams. It has a square foot, and the four sides curve inward at the top to a reeded opening square flush lid with recessed hinge. The spout is conical, with an oval base.The handle and finial are a dark brown wood, with a silver cap on top of the finial. The finial is secured with a silver nut. The piece is engraved on both sides with a family crest of a stag with one foot raised. It is marked on the base with full London hallmarks for 1834-35 around the "EEJ&W B" maker's mark, as well as a cross shaped journeyman's mark and the number "339". The lid is marked with a lion passant and the correct date letter. Condition on the pot is fair. There are solder repairs visible in the interior at all four corners and the top of the spout, with some visibility on the exterior as well.
The piece has been greatly overpolished, and the crests are smeared. There are minor dents as well.
The lid closes nicely, though. Still a decent early 19. C teapot by a fine maker. This item is in the category "Antiques\Silver\Non-U.
