This elegant silver teapot was made by John Emes, an engraver, plateworker and watercolour painter who first went into partnership with Henry Chawner, before registering his own mark in 1798. Working with his wife Rebecca, their successful firm produced ornate presentation pieces. This small, bullet-shaped teapot made in 1799 is simply decorated with a rising cape, or flared rim, a model which Emes produced for several years until his death in 1808. The teapot was part of the collection at Harewood House, home to HRH Princess Mary (1897-1965), daughter of King George V and Queen Mary.
