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.
