|Object:||Kettle Warmer and Stand|
|Estimated Period:||19th century|
|Country of Origin:||England|
|Condition:||Excellent condition - barely used with minimal signs of aging & wear|
Here for auction is an antique kettle warmer.
The kettle sits atop a beautifully decorated stand and in the centre of the stand is a removable vessel that you fill with paraffin and then burn the wick to keep the water warm.
The kettle is beautifully decorated with a floral and bird design and has a lovely hinged lid. At each side of the kettle are two metal spikes that stick out allowing you to suspend the kettle on the stand.
The kettle has a mark on the base of it but it has worn through age so I am unsure as to the manufacturer, the age or indeed the composition of the piece.
However, given the design of the kettle an estimate puts it at late 1800 to early 1900's.
The kettle is quite heavily tarnished in places but it is likely the kettle and stand is covered in silver plate or possibly EPNS, but there are no visible indicators to differentiate between the two. It is more likely to be the former as similar listings around this age indicate silver plate.
The entire set remains in excellent condition despite its age both the kettle and the stand.
As for the burner, it seems like it has been used but seems to still be in good condition and usable.
The sides are decorated with intricate patterns depicting leaves, flowers and birds.
On the bottom of the kettle you can see hallmarks (as shown in the pictures) that reads: 2 S 9 4 6 8 as well as three other marks, one is a sign that I cannot identify, the other looks like a two in roman numerals and the final one seems like a zero.
I am unsure of the origins of this set but I know that it has been in England for a while. A truly remarkable piece, rich in patterns and beauty.

The info in Catawiki stated that one statue had a broken hand
This is not true
BOTH STATUES have the hand broken - not one
This is an unfair information which significantly devalues the items I have
