Pure silver teapot, filigree peony

$4,204.00

A pure silver teapot in a classic Japanese design. The silver has been hammered, fused, then worked in relief with filigrees forming an incredible mesh surrounding a motif of a peony. Magnificent application of silver beads punctuating the design of formed rosettes. All set a little more in relief by the smoky bottom of the money. the spout skilfully embellished with arabesques, the braided handle for heat insulation. A beautiful work.

After being smoked with sulphur, the silver surface is blackened with pewter, then polished to restore luster to the parts in relief, the background retains its black color of smoked silver.

Small reminder: Money has a sterilizing effect, our elders know it well.
