Sterling Tea or Coffee Pot - West & Son - Dublin


We are pleased to offer a highly unusual tea or coffee pot created by one of the premier Irish silversmithing firms of this last century, West & Son. Due to the style of their hallmark, the creation date is roughly around 1918This pot is in typical baluster shape, decorated in a florid, highly decorative rococo style - a very elaborate scene of a single stag being chased (attacked?) by two very lean hounds, while birds are dive-bombing them all. There is a single cartouche with the profile of an Irish Wolfhound, and the letter 'G' in Gothic script under a crown.The handle is surprisingly stark for the animated style of this pot. It is woven in what looks like rattan... and the wrapping is coming loose and will need to be replaced or repaired.There are five tiny (1/16th of an inch... maybe) diagonal nicks on the rim area of the lid, and for the life of me, I can't figure out what made them. Considering the exquisite workmanship, I can't imagine that it would be a manufacturing oversight. Other than the issues mentioned, this pot has no dents or deformities... no scratches, and it sits nice and level. The lid hinge is tight and moves easily.The interior is quite clean, needing only a good wash. And all in all, this is a magnificent piece of workmanship.... literally stunning. I've had it sitting in my office for several months now... and every time I go by, I can't help but pick it up and marvel at the riveting woodland scene.This pot measures 10 1/2 inches tall from tabletop to the lid, and 7 inches from handle to spout.

This pot weighs a very nice 775 grams or 24.92 troy ounces.

I carefully wash and wet-polish every item by hand so I can objectively judge the condition of the items I am offering. Thispiece was obviously treatedwith great care and respect.
