The pot sits on a decorative stand with elongated side supports mounted onto a squared base with diagonal formed corners that sit on fancy paw feet. Comes with its original burner.The hinge connecting the lid to the pot is tight and the lid opens and closes correctly. Pot has a lovely 2-letter monogram "M G".
Each piece is marked Tiffany & Co. This mark was used beginning in 1865 on their commercial production. Measures 11 1/2" high (as shown) with a 4 3/4" base (side to side). The pot measures 6" high to top of lid (not including finial), 8" wide (not including side supports) and 4 1/2 deep. This lovely pot makes an impressive appearance and is in good Estate condition.
There are a couple of flaws to note. The spout on the pot is not correctly rounded on the bottom of the opening yet this can be easily reshaped by a professional restorer.
The handle should be a swing handle, however, it does not move as originally intended. It is stuck in a slightly crooked position not being level over the finial. The silver is in very good condition and will polish beautifully with only minor signs of normal wear. The bottom of the kettle has burnt residue from using the burner that we have not tried to remove.The kettle is clean on the interior and this is a nice item that can be used.
