A fine Dutch 833 silver hot water kettle, richly embossed all over with birds, flowers, and a fabulous Dutch scene on front and back. Swing handle with a cherub head on each end and a mythical beast head spout. Maker’s mark on bottom but we can’t make it out, along with date mark for 1916 and silver content. Marked for Schoonhoven on lid. Height 8 ½ inches with handle up; length across spout 8 inches; base diameter 3 5/8 inches. Weight 520 grams. Repair to underside of fillet; handle jiggles a bit where one fillet was replaced in the past.
