DESCRIPTION

Antique 19th Century Georgian Scottish solid silver tea kettle on a three feet spirit burner stand, richly gilded, massive size, the body is embossed with an incredibly crisp decoration featuring a Classical battle scene on one side and a Chinoiserie scene depicting an Oriental city on the other, all amongst flowers and scrolling foliage on a matted ground, the impressive stand cast with protruding dogs, masks and flowers amongst scrolls, it rests on three cast figural feet and is fitted with the original burner.

This is one of the best and most exceptional tea kettles we have ever seen, very heavy and crisp, tremendous condition and quality. The unusual subject and the highly decorative technique is clearly inspired by the contemporary creations by the well-known silversmith Edward Farrell, and this kettle matches in style and quality Farrell's sought after tea sets, suggesting that it might have been made to complete a set by Edward Farrell.

The stand, kettle and cover are Hallmarked Scottish silver (925 Standard), Edinburgh, year 1826 (u), Maker's mark crowned WM (William Marshall I, one of the best Scottish silversmiths).
