The upper portion of the stand is embellished with impressive scroll bordered floral sprays, reflecting the same style to that of the body. The stand incorporates a plain scrolling frame which retains the original hallmarked detachable spirit burner accented with a hallmarked hinged snuffer. The spirit kettle stand is fitted with the original chains and security pegs. This exceptional spirit kettle was crafted by the notable and collectable silversmith John Samuel Hunt and bears the retailer's mark'Hunt & Roskell, Late Storr & Mortimer' to the underside of the kettle.
