These French silver teapot art prints remind us of royal palaces with gilded ceilings, heavily jeweled clothing, and luxuriously set tables for an impressive afternoon tea.
Precious metals were always coveted by nobility. Not only could they be made into useful objects like this teaware, but they could also be melted down again into currency when fashions and fortunes changed.
Because of potential abuse, silversmiths were a closely regulated profession by the medieval guilds, and because of the cost of materials, they worked almost exclusively for wealthy nobility.
These royal art prints are just right for the King or Queen of your family or friends.
