Silver Tea Pots of 1700s Photos

Silver tea pots of the 1700s used only a couple of simple shapes (called Georgian) which continued into the early 1800s when other designs started evolving. Coffee pots from the time were not common as tea was the basic drink in Britain & America. Chocolate was an expensive alternative to tea & chocolate pots used were taller than tea pots.
