Elegant and rare antique English Georgian solid sterling silver oval teapot stand with bright-cut engraved decoration and a good central crest over the filled original monogram. Very good, the engraved decoration to the perimeter of the field has softened, gentle leg top impressions to rim, three little bumps/digs to the plain field. The cartouche has had the original cursive'B' monogram filled. This is much better than erasure and a technically more difficult and expensive process indicating that this piece has always been highly prized.Immediately after a fresh professional polish and under high powered photographic lights the'B' can just be seen but under normal circumstances you will struggle.
