Sterling Holloware: Tea Pots

Sterling Silver Teapot for Sale

Did you know that the first recorded sterling silver teapot was made in England? It was around 1670 and was given as a gift from Lord George Berkeley to the East India Company. It was small in size to the high cost of tea at the time. It wasn’t until the 18th century that the shape we know today became the standard. Sterling silver is the perfect metal to host tea due to its natural properties that retain heat so well. Sterling silver teapots brew tea at a higher temperature than tea brewed in any other type of pot. Come visit Nelson & Nelson in New York City.
