We are offering for your consideration a lovely, silver plated, Tilt Kettle or Spirit Kettle manufactured in England around 1900. It bears a Pseudo mark with the word, “England.” The use of pseudo hallmarks was a common practice in the UK during the Victorian era and most UK manufacturers adopted hallmarks of figures and letters to identify their company. At the time, silver plate was used by lower classes as an affordable substitute for sterling silver and to gratify the ambition of their customers composed these initials and figures similar to that used by the Assay Offices for sterling silver. Many remain unidentified today. The Spirit Kettle on the base measures 14 inches tall. The kettle alone measures 10 inches high. The tilt kettle has the popular melon shape decorated with embossed flowers and leaves. The slight dome cover bears the identical design in miniature and has a striking finial of flowers growing along a leafy stem. An ornate handle has insulators to absorb the heat from the pot for pouring. The base with paw shaped feet, holds the original burner and the kettle. Two chains attach the kettle to the base. To pour, one would remove the back chain which would allow the kettle to tilt forward on the base for pouring.
