Seller: antiquesandmooresales (6,191) 99.7%, Location: Hendersonville, North Carolina, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 132205743759 Welcome to Antiques & Moore! This listing is for a gorgeous antique S. Kirk & Son Sterling Silver 3-piece hot water kettle on stand with burner in the beautiful hand chased "Repousse" floral design issued in 1828. This stunning hot water kettle and stand are decorated with an elegant all-over hand chased floral design standing in high relief. The stand is chased with matching pattern to the kettle which sits fitted into the elaborate stand which sits high above the burner. The stand sits on four ornately decorated paw feet. The burner is also marked Sterling Silver and is original to the stand. Please note that we also have a coordinating Sterling Silver 3-piece "Repousse" coffee/tea set and a coordinating 30.5" silver plated tray that were used with this kettle which together make a very impressive display. The coffee/tea set and tray are shown in our last photo and are listed separately. We also have several other Repousse serving pieces available listed separately, so please check our eBay Store for more of this great silver. This hot water kettle used with the tea set and tray is among the most impressive Sterling Silver sets I have seen in 40 years of being in the antiques business. It is nothing short of amazing! The silver kettle and stand have beautiful original patina and are in excellent Estate condition with no damage or noted flaws. There is some minor "play" in the handle where it attaches at the heat conductor rings. The handle is very secure and this should be an inexpensive fix for any jeweler. The burner does have a dent on the rounded bottom edge, however, this is totally hidden when the burner is in place. Marked "S. Kirk & Son Co., 925/1000" and "101C" on the base of the kettle. This mark was used from 1896-1924. Group consists of: (1) Hot Water Kettle - measures 9" high, 9 1/2" wide, 6 1/2" deep (not including the protruding pieces that sit on the stand) with a 3 3/4" diameter base. Weighs 990 grams. (2) Kettle Stand - measures 6 1/4" high (to top of kettle supports), 7 3/4" wide with a 6 1/4" diameter base. Weighs 695 grams. (3) Burner - 1 7/8" high, 2 7/8" in diameter with 3" protruding handle. Weighs 190 grams. Combined weight of set is 1875 grams. The iconic "Repousse" pattern by S. Kirk & Son made its debut in 1828 making it the oldest Sterling Silver pattern produced in the United States where its remained to this day as one of the most popular patterns ever created. To create this pattern, the Philadelphia trained silversmith Samuel Kirk revived an ancient technique known as "repousse" to create an embossed design that is both versatile and instantly recognized.
