I recently came across a unique item and would be grateful if anyone could help provide some information.
The item is a Sterling Silver Mappin & Webb London Teapot.
To the best of my knowledge in researching the piece the hallmarks are as follows:
There is a JNM (John Newton Mappin) hallmark, the lion hallmark (sterling silver), the uncrowned leopards head (London??) hallmark and the letter A (1896??) hallmark.
Can anyone identify the pattern? I have found other Mappin & Webb teapots but none as ornate as this one. I would greatly appreciate any assistance you could provide in determining the value and if my reading of the hallmarks is correct. Thanks
