This exceptional antique George III sterling silver samovar has a plain urn shaped form supported by a spreading circular pedestal foot onto a plain square base and four bun style feet.

The body of this impressive antique silver samovar is plain and encircled with a band of applied bead decoration to the upper rim.

The anterior surface of the body incorporates a fine and impressive reed decorated spigot accented with an applied floral motif to either side, in addition to a lion mask design to the lip.

The spigot retains the impressive original stained pear wood handle surmounted with an impressive incurved shaped handpiece/finial.

The circular socket of the spigot is encircled with applied bead decoration in junction with the plain body.
