This European Silver Tea Kettle with Chaffing Dish is an amazing statement and conversation piece. Our appraiser believes that it was custom made for someone who was probably from nobility or upper class as it has the crest lion passant. Thus far, the actual maker has been untraced. The decorated style and form resembles other similar examples from the 18th and 19th century.
The finial boasts of a man on top of it all and might be linked to German upper class as he appears to look out and watch the world around him. The wick-riser bears a Star of David and further lends to the mystery. This item was bought from someone who extensively traveled and who also appears to have lost her first husband in World War 2. This tilting tea kettle with burner has no doubt a fascinating story that is still unfolding.Be apart of the conversation by making this stunning piece of history yours today! There is some minor silver loss to this piece. The loss appears on the bottom of the kettle where the heated area would hit the kettle. A about a 1.5 inch area along the seem underneath the spout (this area is thin and very light/not affecting the overall look of the piece).
The handle as well has some loss along the ridges. Still this amazing piece of history appears to be a one of a kind stunner! Please see all pictures and feel free to ask questions.
