The kettle detaches from the original hallmarked sterling silver stand, supported by three impressive opposing scrolling legs with chased leaf decorated feet. The upper portion of the stand is embellished with impressive bright cut engraved scrolling and floral decoration, reflecting the same style to that of the body. The stand incorporates a plain scrolling frame which retains the original hallmarked detachable spirit burner. 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.
This antique Victorian silver spirit kettle is a very good gauge of silver, excellent quality and in excellent condition. The chased decoration is very sharp and the bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp. Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the kettle and spirit burner, and part hallmarks to the stand, kettle handle and cover are all very clear. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine example of Victorian teaware. Height to top of handle.
