A rare George IV Bachelor Teapot made in London in 1827 by Joseph Angel.

This beautiful, and unusual, Teapot stands on a plain shaped foot and the main body displays a lobed melon form engraved with panels of Rococo shells, scrolls and trellis work. The front of the main body displays a scroll cartouche engraved with a set of contemporary script initials. The slightly domed cover is also divided into panels and displays engraved foliate motifs and shell details. The cover terminates in a finely detailed finial modelled to simulate the sprig from a flowering rose plant. The cast spout is decorated with lobing, strapwork and leaf capping and the fruitwood scroll handle is attached to the main body with foliate mouldings and scrolls. The Teapot is in exceptionally crisp condition and is well marked on the side of the main body, on the base and on the inside of the hinged cover. Joseph Angel was a very fine silversmith and this is the first time we have seen this design of bachelor teapot.
