19th Century Elkington & Co. Silver Samovar

About

Presenting a gorgeous mid-19th century ‘Old Sheffield Plated Silver’ samovar with mother of pearl handle by the very highly regarded Elkington & Co, and dating from 1852. It is fully marked on the base. The first mark signifies ‘electro plate’, the second mark is “E. and Co under a Crown inside a shield” for Elkington & Co. The third and final mark is the capital letter “N” for 1852. Beautiful engraving and chased throughout in classic floral patterns, the central armorial cartouche is blank for personalization. The samovar sits on a square base with fretwork gallery and four lions paw feet. It has a removable lid than finishes with a floral finial. It has two scrolling vine handles on either side. Some very minor blemishes consistent with age, but otherwise in excellent condition. The silver plating is still immaculate!! Old Sheffield plate items like this and in particular, by Elkington & Co., are highly sought after! The quality of the plating is simply superb, to think that it is still in this fabulous condition (without silver loss) despite being 166 years old is amazing! "Elkington & Co. are one of the most important names in English silver and certainly the most important in silver plate."
