The International Silver Company (1898-1983) was formed by various independent New England silversmiths that joined themselves together to form a company that became the world's largest manufacturer of silverware.
This is a charming silver plated Tea Kettle and a Stand by The International Silver Company.
The set comprises the kettle with beautiful floral repousse decoration with a hinged lid and the stand, which has four legs ending with hooves.
This set comes from the late 19- early 20 century.
In those days such sets were used to keep extra hot water warm to top-up the tea pot.
The spirit burner which would have been used for fire is missing.
It looks like this set has never been used functionally, just for the decorative purposes.
That explains why it does not have the burner and it explains the perfect condition of the interior of the kettle.
The exterior of the set was hand-cleaned and polished. It has several visible signs of wear in the interior.
The set measures:
Height of the kettle with the handle up- 10 ¼”
Height of the kettle with the handle down- 6”
Width of the kettle- 9 ¼”
Height of the stand- 4 ¾”
