This antique Victorian sterling silver spirit kettle has a large baluster shaped form.

The surface of the kettle is embellished to the upper and lower portions with impressive bright cut engraved interlacing scrolling decoration accented with floral sprays.

The decoration to this Victorian silver spirit kettle incorporates a cartouche to both side, one remains vacant and the other bears the contemporary engraved inscription:

‘Presented to Bro Alfred Pound P.P.G.O by The Wor. Master & Brethren in appreciation of his 25 Yrs esteemed service as Organist to The Gwalia Lodge of Freemasons, No. 4213’.

This antique silver kettle is fitted with a flush hinged hallmarked cover encircled with further scrolling motifs; the flush hinge indicates the fine quality of this piece.

The cover is surmounted with the original sterling silver finial encompassed with bright cut engraved scalloped decoration.

This fine and large example of antique teaware is fitted with an impressive hallmarked sterling silver scrolling handle ornamented with impressive chased decorated leaf and scroll decorated terminals.

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.
