Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a coin silver teapot made by Philip Garrett who worked in Philadelphia from 1801-1828 on his own. Then his son joined the silversmith workshop and he signed " P.Garrett & Son" accordingly. His Son Thomas Cresson Garrett kept on the tradition until 1860. The teapot in your possession is a lovely piece of early American silver. The estimate is based on auction results. A real silver enthusiasts might be willing to pay more than the high estimate.
