From bottom of stand to top of handle. 10 ½ inches wide (end of handle to end of spout). Weight is 49.21 Troy oz (three lbs 6 oz sterling silver).
In Very Good to Fine condition, wear is consistent with age with one very minor dimple (see photo # 8). The small teeth on the inside gear to raise & lower the wick for the burner are worn from age. The mechanism still raises/lowers the wick by turning the outside wheel of the gear but it is not a very smooth operation.
The wick can also easily be pulled up or pushed down by hand without using the gear. The hand done craftsmanship of this piece is fabulous!! This very striking, all sterling silver, all hand crafted Hot Water Kettle has all its lines & designs beautifully hand chased. Hand engraving is also done on different sections of this kettle and stand. This is a very unique & beautiful piece.
Metalwork technique used to define or refine the forms of a surface design and to bring them to the height of relief required. Is the opposite of embossing , or repoussé , in which the metal is worked from the back to give a higher relief. Hasing is moving the metal, engraving is more to removing metal. The coat of arm on one side of each piece says in Latin "Hope, Perseverance, Success" "What I hope to accomplish I shall accomplish".
There is a place for a monogram (your monogram) which is not monogramed. This hot water kettle is a. Magnificent example of silver craftsmanship at its absolute finest and a.N exquisite way to show sophistication and impeccable taste in any home. I will gladly answer any questions.
