1883 F.B Rogers Silver Hollowware Antique Tea Pot 2391

You are bidding on a rather nifty find from my grandmother's attic. This is a silver plate hollowware teapot by F.B. Rogers Silver Co in pattern number 2391. The teapot stands about 10 inches tall, and is a little over 9 inches wide from spout to handle.

On the bottom of the base is the maker's mark, reading as follows: Trade Mark (with a crown between the two words) 18 to the left of the crown and 83 to the right; F.B. Rogers Silver Co.; and 2391 on the last line. I've tried three times to take a picture of the bottom, and my camera is just not doing it right. If I manage to get a decent one, I'll add it on.

The body has a bottom piece and a top piece that are joined by a decorative seam running around the middle. The spout is slightly curved up and about 5 inches long. The bottom of the spout has wavy ornate lines and repeats the flowers from the feet on the base. The handle is elegantly curved, about 6 inches long and looks like half of a heart.
