James W Tufts Tilting Teapot, Antique Silver Plate Swing Teapot, Collectible Tufts Silver Plate, Victorian Silver Plate Holloware

Sorry, this item has sold.

James W. Tufts silver plate teapot. The antique Tufts tilting or swinging teapot is a late 1800's piece by James W. Tufts. The teapot features decorative floral repousse pattern around the brim below the lid and on the base of the stand. It has a ribbed pattern along the spout and on the curve of the handle. I have polished the piece and it does polish up brightly. The inside is also clean for the age.
The teapot does have the original heating element but I have not tried to use it. I do not have any type of wick for the element.
The teapot and stand both have the James W Tufts hallmark with his name, Boston and a four point star with a T in the middle.
The piece actually has the notation plate guaranteed.
There is some vintage wear to this piece. The handle has some loss of silver showing the darker metal underneath. ( Please see photo 6). There may be a few other spots where there maybe very minimal loss.
*Please note the other wear is the spout. The spout has been slightly bent over the years. It does not prohibit the item from the functionality of a teapot, but it is slightly bent. Please see photos 7, 8. Priced accordingly.
James W. Tufts was a successful and talented silver plater in Boston. He first issued a patent on his designs in 1885. He passed away in 1902.
