Wageningen Teapot on stand

Only four silversmiths were active in Wageningen in the eighteenth century, so silver objects from the town are extremely rare. This teapot, moreover, comes with its original stand, a small tray to catch any drops of tea that might otherwise fall on the table or sideboard on which it stood. These little stands have almost always been lost. The pear-shaped teapot has plain walls with grooved corners that continue over the cover. The teapot and stand both have four scroll feet.
Both pieces are fully hallmarked on the underside with the Wageningen assay mark a wheel below a crown and W below a crown, WB ligated below a crown for Willem Boekelman and the date letter S.
