An exceptional, fine and impressive, antique Victorian English sterling silver spirit kettle; an addition to our antique silver teaware collection

SKU A7213

This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver spirit kettle has a melon shaped, incurved panelled form.

Each segment of the panelled body is embellished with impressive alternating flat engraved designs incorporating quatrefoil motifs accented with bordered leaf ornamentation and a trellis pattern, all encompassed with a matte texture.

The upper portion of the body is encircled with a flat engraved undulating border with applied moulded decoration to the scalloped rim.

This antique silver kettle is fitted with a domed hinged hallmarked cover surmounted with the exceptional and original hallmarked sterling silver gourd shaped finial, securing to the interior with a wing nut.

This fine example of Victorian teaware is fitted with an impressive hallmarked sterling silver scrolling handle ornamented with impressive cast S scroll, leaf decorated terminals accented with large scrolling leaf decorated sockets in junction with the body.

This solid silver kettle has a plain panelled swan necked spout with an impressive scalloped shaped socket accented with a paralleling border.

This exceptional kettle detaches from the original hallmarked cast sterling silver stand, supported by four impressive cast scrolling legs accented with further applied leaf ornamentation.

The upper portion of the stand is encircled with impressive cast scrolling leaf ornamentation with a central floral design.

The stand incorporates a plain scrolling frame which retains the original spirit burner, reflecting the identical panelled form to the body and cover.

The silver spirit kettle stand is fitted with the original chains and security pegs.

This impressive example of antique teaware was crafted by the collectable and renowned London silversmiths Edward, Edward junior, John & William Barnard.
