Gorgeous, antique, Old Sheffield Plate, tea urn/coffee with lion head/ door knocker style embellishments circa late 1700s early 1800s. The urn is globe shaped on a semi-square based stand with Neoclassical figural lion face and ring handles. Please use the zoom feature to look at all the decorative features--especially the lion handles! It's missing the spigot insert handle, which can be replaced.
This tea urn is in beautiful condition, especially for its age and use, with just a little base copper peaking through on some raised areas. The last picture shows a trio of similar pieces in an Old Sheffield plate book. Measurements: approx 10" tall, 7" diameter at its widest, 10 from back to tip of spout. Marks: No makers mark (typical for Old Sheffield Plate).
The urn is in good antique condition especially for its age and use. Some typical signs of age and use like light surface scratches/ marks.
No visible wear to the plating other than the copper bleed through (which is actually desired for OSP) as previously mentioned, some small dings. The spigot insert and handle is missing (as mentioned before), please keep this in mind when purchasing.No obvious damage I can see.
