A quite magnificent tea or hot water urn made by the creme de la creme of English Electro-Plate manufacturers, Elkington & Co.

A fabulous example with classical faces topping the handles and a welcoming pineapple topping the lid. The urn is beautifully hand chased with floral and foliate garlands and stands on beautifully cast feet with a shell motif.

The urn is complete with it's original heating case and heavy Iron weight which would have been heated on the range and then placed into the container in turn placed into the urn to keep the liquid warm.

The Spigot is lucky enough to have retained it's handle, quite wonderful. There is a full hallmark for Elkington & Co., with a date letter for 1867.

I have paired it (for photographic purposes only) with this mirrored Plateau which (if available) can be purchased separately if required, the beaded decoration on both pieces make them a perfect combination.

The back cartouche is engraved with a family crest of a boar with a banner underneath "nunquam obliviscar" or I will never forget.

The urn spans 10 1/4" across the handles and towers 21 3/4" tall (excluding Plateau).
