Width - 9 From the spout to the handle. Weight - 1.8 pounds. Below is a brief explanation that I found online about Italian silver hallmarks that pertain to the markings on this teapot.The law 5 February 1934 n. 305 uniformity in the shape of silversmith's marks. The new mark identifying the silversmith consisted of a lozenge containing: number: corresponding to the number identifying the silversmith. Two letters: initials of Province. The lozenge was coupled to an oval containing the purity degree 800 or 925 per thousand. According to the marking on the teapot it was made somewhere between 1934 and 1943 because in 1944 the hallmark changed again the only change was the lozenge mark was not without'fascio' number/province and this teapot does have the numbers inside the lozenge. Measurements were taken as accurately as possible. The teapot is stamped and signed it is in antique pre owned condition and comes from a smoke free home.
There are a few scratched on the bottom of the kettle please refer to pictures to see the exact condition of the pitcher. The teapot is made of 800 parts silver it has the 800 mark in oval and a lozenge mark with the silversmiths number/ fascio/ province the handle has a gorgeous gemstone it looks like jade and the teapot itself has a hammered look to it. Arrigo Finzi was one of the best silversmiths' of that time period he made futuristic surreal looking pieces which he is was well known for.
