J. Mayer Silver Coffee Pot

I am inquiring about a sterling silver coffee pot or tea pot that my sister found after Hurricane Katrina struck our region. It was obviously of value to someone as it had been secured in a plastic bag.

From what we can tell, it was a product of J. Mayer Silver, the maker was Robert Hennell III, it was made in 1855 and is in incredible condition. It has very elaborate raised carvings of farm animals. According to our research it is sterling silver, made in Liverpool. We cannot find another one like it online anywhere.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
