Description


This exceptional antique George III sterling silver coffee urn/samovar has an urn shaped form supported by a spreading circular pedestal foot onto a cut cornered square base and four ball style feet.


The alternating concave panelled body of this impressive antique Georgian coffee urn is encompassed with impressive wrigglework decorated borders, in addition to bright cut engraved suspended floral festoons accented with a ribbon bow motif to the apex.


The festoons to the anterior and posterior panels each incorporate an oval cartouche; the anterior surface depicts the contemporary engraved initials 'HMR' and the posterior remains vacant.


The upper portion of the body is further embellished with a band of engraved decoration accented with simplified quatrefoil floral motifs.


The anterior surface of the body incorporates a fine and impressive cast spigot accented with ribbed decoration, incorporating the exceptional and original carved incurved shaped handle.


This Georgian coffee urn is fitted with a pair of cast silver narrow loop handles with further ribbed decoration to the handpieces and large impressive leaf decorated upper terminals.


This impressive example of antique silver retains the original plain domed hallmarked push fit cover surmounted with an impressive cast sterling silver ball style finial.


The surface of the cover is embellished with a further engraved border, identical to that encompassing the body.


The circular pedestal terminates to the square base with a shaped foot reflecting the concave panelled shape of the body.


The foot and base of the coffee urn are encompassed with the further engraved decoration.

Condition


This antique coffee urn is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The cast decoration is very sharp and the engraved ornamentation is very crisp.

There is some minor loss and crazing to the handle; this does not affect the integrity or aesthetically pleasing appearance of the piece.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the body, in addition to part hallmarks to the sleeve of the cover are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Georgian silverware.
