The pair of suns appear to be the mark of Mappin Brothers, Sheffield, from c1850.

(ignore the Boulton na7me in the last link; the image linked to is the Mappin Bros mark.
ETA: The teapot will be silver plate. Searching a heraldric symbol database might identify the family whose crest contained the engraved beastie.
