This antique silver spirit kettle is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition. The piece has been professionally polished and is in presentation condition. The chased decoration is very sharp. Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the kettle, in addition to the part hallmarks to the spirit burner, stand, security pegs and interior of the kettle 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 fine example of antique teaware.
