Dutch silver pumpkin-shaped teapot

Salomon Lamberts

Zutphen, 1766

432 grams, all in; 13 cm high


This naturalistic silver teapot, raised on five leaf supports, with leaf-moulded spout and wood handle, is a fine example of Louis XV style in the Netherlands. It displays the engraved coats-of–arms of Karl Wilhelm von Quadt Wickradt Hüchtenbruck and Anna Louisa Maria Elisabeth Gertruda von Nagell. Fully marked at the reverse.


Salomon Lamberts can be regarded as an important 18th century silversmith in Zutphen, who received commissions from Zutphen aristocrats and wealthy citizens for precious silver household objects.
