Stunning sterling silver coffee pot, elaborately crafted by William Robert Smily, London, 1850. The baluster shaped body stands on four feet mounted with splendid mascarons. The mascarons reflect the Japonisme Movement sweeping through Europe during this period. The fierce warrior faces could as easily be American Indian, given the head-dress. This pot also noteworthy for the chasing and small decorative work. Each side has a large central oval cartouche, framed in finely chased rocailles, and strapping. Above the mascarons are large bell flowers, on a fine chased ground, circled with a lamberkin, also chased. The mid-section of the body, as background, is where some quite nice lattice and scales work can be found. Both the upper and lower ends of the pot are smooth, edged with lamberkins and rocailles. The handle attached with elaborate acanthus leafs. And the lid! One mustn't forget the lid, with charming top knop designed as a bird foraging in leafs (no worm in evidence). The lid is rimmed in lamberkins. Condition is excellent, and there are no monograms on the pot. A perfect piece to personalize and add to your own legacy.

You guessed it! Don't miss the matching lidded sugar sold separately.

Dimensions: The pot is 10" tall, 9.5" lang, and 6" diameter; weighs 950 grams.

Marks: The bottom is fully hall marked with: Maker's Punch for Smily, lion passant, the .925 sterling guarantee, London City mark, Year mark for 1850, and duty mark.
