An ornate silver teapot. The teapot has a fluted base with foliage patterns, on which sits a narrow stem of the teapot. This then rises outwards into the wide body. The body is topped with a lid with a pyramid shaped point. The handle of the teapot is also ornately decorated. The body of the teapot is covered with flowers and foliage. Each side of the teapot has panels for inscription, but only one is filled in: " PRESENTED TO / MRS. HAMBLYN / by Mrs. Hood and Family / FOR HER KINDNESS AND ATTENTION / TO PETER HOOD / who died at New Plymouth / on the 29th July / 1856 "
