His impressive piece of silver was c. It is hallmarked for the very collectable Newcastle Assay Office, which closed in April 1884. I believe that the year letter to the base is for 1738, it may be later but James Kirkup was known to be active from about 1713 until his death in 1753.
Either way, it definitely seems to date from the mid 18. The teapot is in a good gauge of silver and is heavy, weighing 442g. This is 15.59oz and just over 14 troy ounces.
