The design registration number 134707 was issued in 1889. The teapot could have been made at any time after that. It is electroplated, not silver.

It is unlikely that the unseen numbers would represent a date in any way. Stamped numbers are normally assumed to be factory stock/pattern IDs and a scratched number would be a later addition, perhaps an inventory marking by an owner. Walker & Hall had their own date code system comprising series of letters in different shaped punches, but they did not mark everything they produced.
