This is an Oval Teapot made of Tin Plated steel often called tin ware. This pot is also referred to as a Gentleman’s Teapot. Commonly used from around 1840 to 1880. It is a nice 19th Century Reproduction. Fully functional & ready to use to brew your favorite tea. It measures 5 1/2 inches high, 3 1/2 inches wide & 9 1/2 from handle to spout. It holds 3 1/2 cups of water to the top but probably would function much better with 2 or 3 cups at a time. You can brew your tea directly in the pot (that’s why the spout is attached near the bottom, tea leaves generally float) or you can use a tea ball for less mess. A few things to remember about using tin ware for cooking: If used over a fire do not put the spout in the flames. It’s best to use a grate & keep the teapot on the edge of the heat. DO NOT LET THE TEAPOT BOIL DRY! You & it will be much happier if you keep liquid in it while using. Hand Wash & dry the Teapot. DO NOT PUT in THE DISHWASHER If you decide to store your teapot for a bit, give it a light rub with food grade mineral oil on a cloth. Your teapot will last for many years of service if taken care of properly. Your teapot will naturally get a darkened patina with use. Oval Gentleman’s
