A collectors piece….
The beautifully and simply rounded body rests on a round stand, while the lovely spout is shaped as a duck bill and lined with 3 simple gadroons.
The lid is slightly dome shaped and has a flower shaped finial.
The handle is in ebony and can be twisted off giving us the possibility to give you the exact silver weight.
