ashbil Griswold teapot

I am pleased to offer this fine example of a pewter teapot by ashbil Griswold of meriden, Connecticut 1807 to 1835.  this 7 5/8" teapot is heavily cast, well detailed and nicely finished.  the spout reveals hand scraping lines attesting to the makers skills.  the pot has ashbils 'eagle' touchmark inside.  the finial button is original and the overall condition is very good.
