Superb Antique Silver Plated Multi-Use Pot by Mappin & Webb c1900


A wonderful antique electroplated nickel-silver multi-use pot, from the most sought after English silver plater of the period.
An interesting piece in so much that it has all the hallmarks of being a coffee pot (ledge inside lid for grindings bag) with the looks of a hot water / chocolate pot.
Made in a superb turn of the century style with a carved ebony handle and removable finial.
I particularly like the finish to the handles fixing points and they certainly deserves a mention here.
Presented in very good condition: See below for more details and definitions.

Made by Mappin & Webb in London or Sheffield.
Bearing their Prince's Plate, triple deposit trademark used from c1890 until early 20th century.
Dated c1900.

Height (top of finial) 18.1cm (7¼")
Capacity .568l (1 pint)

In arguably very good condition, with no damage* or repairs.
There are couple of minute, rather insignificant dings that are not immediately noticeable and only mentioned for clarity.
Nevertheless, the overall grading has been slightly reduced for this reason alone.
There is no loss of plate.
Bearing the usually inherent scratches that one must reasonably expect on a used antique pieces.
Impressively presentable internally.

I am sure this rather magnificent piece will still draw lots of attention, especially because of the maker.
I respectfully suggest an early bid to make your mark!
A reasonable starting bid has been set, there is no other reserve.
Make no mistake, this unusual example will sell to the highest bidder.
Make sure its you!

Thanks for stopping by - why not take a peek at my other items?
Where possible I always combine shipping on multiple wins to save you postage costs.

All Silver plate and other metal pieces in my listings are of some age and generally have been used for the purpose for which they were made.
For clarity within my listings the grading definitions I use which best describe the external qualities of each piece are as follows:
(Internal condition will be listed on an individual basis)

Very Fine - Extremely good condition with no detrimental issues - rarely found on antiques outside of a museum!
Fine - Has signs of careful / respectful use with minimal surface scratches commensurate with age and such use.
Very Good - Has no dings of any real consequence, few scratches (no more than expected through normal usage), that are not unsightly.
Good - May have less than five minor dings and / or some scratching (more than normal usage) and / or minor pit marks, along with some minor thinning to the plate commensurate with long periods of use, but not considered too detrimental.
Fairly Good - May have numerous (+ five) minor dings and / or some plate thinning and other signs of prolonged use which may include deep scratches and patches of pit marks to the plating.
Reasonable - May have repairable / repaired dents or other issues and may / or will need replating, but is still of probable interest.
Anything considered less than reasonable will not be listed in my auctions!

I cannot guarantee the thickness of plating remaining. I strongly recommend that one uses a good quality silver cleaner sparingly. Once polished, the sheen can easily be maintained by simply washing in warm soapy water, and drying with a soft clean cloth immediately.

Any dating and period statements given are estimates only, depending on my experience with styles and information available within my vast documentation and other on-line sources.
I am only human and may sometimes, inadvertently get this wrong!
Where possible, exact dating will be confirmed by date markings or registered numbers where available.

All other curios and items of interest will be described individually and graded as I see them.
No Item I offer is deemed to be unfit for purpose, if it was, it would not be listed!
