Late Federal Period Silver Tea Pot
A handsome tea pot by Thomas J. Megear (b. 1809) who worked in Wilmington 1831-32 and Philadelphia 1833-1857. It is quite heavy for its size, 42.2 troy oz.. It has an engraved “G” in script on one side.
Excellent condition for its age. There are only a few very small dings and scratches. The maker's mark is partially unreadable.
