A sensational piece of Late Victorian era Silverware. Plated silver watering can shape after Christopher Dresser, and very much in the Aesthetic, even secessionist style. The angular, quite severe form is tempered with a delicate surface engraved pattern. Two angular loop like slots to upper handle and lid suggest this may have had an unusual trivet like stand or perhaps a spirit kettle cradle?

Do you combine items for postage?
Where possible we'll do our best to save you some $$$!
However, please note some items are just too big and some too fragile to be sent combined.
Can I pick up?

Long answer.....Co-ordinating pick ups is just too time consuming for the amount of buyers we have each week, plus we're too busy running around sourcing all the great stock for you! Rest assured our "packing elves" handle/pack all items with great care to ensure all items arrive as described.
