Description


This magnificent antique Victorian sterling silver spirit tea kettle has a plain oval tapering form.


The upper and lower portions of the body are encompassed with chased decorated vertebrate bands of scrolling leaf ornamentation accented with floral motifs.


The shoulders of this Victorian tea kettle are embellished with an impressive applied rope twist style, spiralling border encasing a single strand.


The upper plateaued portion of the kettle is encircled with an applied galleried palmette style border to the rim.


This antique tea kettle is fitted with an impressive push fit hallmarked cover embellished with chased stylised overlapping leaf decoration.


The cover is surmounted with an exceptional, fine and impressive sterling silver tiered finial.


This fine example of antique teaware is fitted with a shaped handle ornamented with impressive chased stemmed floral, leaf and laurel decoration, all on a matt background.


The antique tea kettle is fitted with an impressive tapering spout, ornamented with further bands of leaf decoration to the lower portion and flanking the waisted upper portion.


The kettle detaches from the original hallmarked sterling silver stand supported by four impressive claw and ball decorated feet accented with bead motifs and naturalistic designs.


The upper rim of the stand is encircled with further applied rope twist decoration, identical to the style to the shoulders of the kettle.


The stand incorporates a plain frame with scrolling brackets, which retains the original hallmarked detachable double spirit burner.


The kettle stand is fitted with the original chains and shaped handled security pegs.


Date: 1877
