Victorian Britannia Metal Spirit Kettle c.1870
Very good little used Victorian Britannia metal spirit kettle in absolutely complete and original condition. The kettle is a very nice classical shape and has a curved horn handle and a carved ebony lid handle. The stand is beautifully modeled with reeded swept legs terminating in detailed lion paw feet. There is some fretted decoration to the stand also. The kettle is attached to the stand with two pins on chains which when the back one is removed allows the kettle to be pivoted at the front for pouring. The burner is also complete and in full working order still with the wick in tact. One of the knobs of the burner is stamped "PATENT No. 26988 / 09.
Carse Antiques has clarified that the Victorian Britannia Metal Spirit Kettle c.1870 (LA29704) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being c.1870
This is one of the nicest "plated" spirit kettles I have seen and is in first class condition.
