Description


This large and impressive, fine antique George IV sterling silver spirit kettle has a compressed circular form onto a circular foot.

The kettle is profusely decorated with fine chased scrolling leaf and flower designs, incorporating scroll and shell decorated, shaped, vacant cartouche to either side.


The rim of the kettle is ornamented with applied and chased decoration.


The kettle is fitted with a push fit domed cover surmounted with an impressive flame style silver finial.


The cast swing handle is ornamented with significant leaf and flower designs, with the central portion overlaid with braided bamboo.


The handle sockets are embellished with impressive applied leaf decoration.


The kettle has a heavily decorated cast swan necked spout with a chased shell embellished socket.


The fully hallmarked cast stand is ornamented with floral garland and mask decoration to the upper portion, and scroll and flower designs to the three supporting legs.


A plain circular ring to the centre of the stand holds the removable, fully hallmarked spirit burner.


The applied decoration encircling the burner reflects the design around the rim of the kettle.
