Gorgeous, antique, Old Sheffield Plate, tea urn/coffee with coal insert circa late 1700s early 1800s. The urn sits on a square based stand with floral lion feet with floral handles and spigot handle. The finial is a dimensional flower bud. Inside and bottom are tinned.
Please use the zoom feature to look at all the decorative features. 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. Measurements: approx 13" tall, 9" diameter.10 from back to tip of spout. 11 wide handle to handle. Marks: No makers mark (typical for Old Sheffield Plate) if there was a mark, it may have been worn away.
The urn is in good antique condition especially for its age and use. Some typical signs of age and use like light surface scratches, small bruises. No visible wear to the plating other than the copper bleed through (which is actually desired for OSP) as previously mentioned. There is some wear to the inside tinning.
It sounds like some of the "concrete" in the base has come lose as you can hear some of it jostling. No obvious damage I can see.
