Antique Rogers Smith & Co New Haven Conn. Silver Plate Tea Pot No.The only example I can find is a piece located in the Metropolitan Museum of Art! This teapot has japanese designs along with a peacock engraved into one side.
The feet have a Japanese Figure Head on each one. The top finial is rare and a sign of social hierarchy. This is the Holy Grail of Rogers Teapots!
It does need some more TLC. I began to clean it but I was weary because of the value. The bottom has two Christmas stamps that I removed to expose the Maker.I did not remove the residue yet.
