Description
This is an exceptional, fine and impressive antique Victorian English sterling silver spirit tea kettle made in the Design style; an addition to our antique silver teaware collection This exceptional antique sterling silver spirit tea kettle has a plain circular tapering form, in the Design style. The posterior surface of this plain kettle is embellished with a contemporary bright cut engraved crest displaying a bird of prey addorsed and elevated, grasping in the claws a serpent nowed. Either side of the kettle is ornamented with two plain sterling silver dowel style pegs, allowing the kettle to sit securely on the stand. This Victorian kettle is fitted with a flush hinged hallmarked cover which retains the original and impressive sterling silver domed circular finial; the flush hinge indicates the high quality of the piece. This fine example of antique teaware is fitted with an impressive tapering handle with circular terminals to either side of the central original turned painted wood handpiece. The antique kettle is fitted with a plain tapering spout. The kettle detaches from the original hallmarked sterling silver stand supported by four crossed bracket legs. The stand incorporates a plain frame which is fitted with a detachable sterling silver spirit burner. The formation of this exceptional example of Victorian silverware, crafted by Edward Hutton of William Hutton & Sons, reflects the design and style of the collectable designer Christopher Dresser*. * Christopher Dresser's geometric style was one of the most important and crucial influences of the late nineteenth century Aesthetic Movement, working in ceramics, glass, graphics metal and woven work. This movement followed a methodology of creating work which has a visual effect over the more traditional Victorian illustrative style.
