Fabulous solid hefty sterling silver kettle, stand and burner. Combined weight is 1480 grams, 47.58 troy ounces! Particularly remarkable in that the kettle is somewhat of a tete a tete size. The kettle holds 24 ounces of fluid. And this one is a beauty. Elegant clean lines with chased acanthus accents, formed feet and ebony handle and top knop. Condition is superb. Over 100 years old and one small dimple at the back of the kettle, an even smaller pin prick on one side. NO MONOGRAMS!! The kettle has fitted hinge type attachments to the stand, with sterling keys on sterling chains to secure the kettle and base. All parts are hallmarked fully: the maker's punch for Charles & George Asprey, .925 sterling guarantee, City mark and year mark for 1905. An absolute show stopper.
