Fantastic huge antique silver tea kettle

William Barber London 1835

£4,950

Utterly fantastic quality hand made kettle by the commission-only silversmith William Barber in London in 1835.  Every piece is original and is either fully hallmarked or part-marked for the smaller pieces.  This melon-shaped kettle features a few unusual things such as:

1) The finial on the lid can be lifted up and rotated so as to let steam out

2) The inset inside the kettle is like a samovar inset and is completely detachable

3) The lid has a setting pin to locate and line up the pattern on the kettle

4) The burner has locating pins so that it sits well in the base.

Had this kettle been made 35 years later it would have had registered design status, but unfortunately this didn’t start till years later.

Offered in great condition with its original crest, the only thing to note is that the wicker wrapping the handle is a tad loose on one end of the handle but this is not a problem and it still functions well.
