Lovely Victorian sterling silver coffee pot in the Queen Anne style standing 240mm tall. Made by Walter and John Barnard of London in year'Q' , 1891.
Oval pedestal foot rising to an oval fluted pot. Above the convex fluting the silver runs plain into the spout and with a sloping step to the lid. The oval lid is domed, fluted and terminates in a circular wooden finial with a central silver bead in the form of a chess pawn. The pot is fitted with the original plain angular wood handle topped with a plain scroll thumb-piece. The pot has no inscriptions or monograms.
Inside the foot reads: ROSSI NORWICH' a'P' and the number 171. Superb gauge of silver at 566g.The hallmarks are rubbed and the makers mark more so. The makers mark shows a partial'w' with a partial'b' and a'j'. Together, and in the shield, they identify the makers as Walter and John Barnard. Visible pinprick dents and cosmetic scratches to the plain/smooth silver. Some minor superficial cracking at the handle joints.
The hinge is in good condition and the lid closes securely and evenly. The foot of the pot has a concussion bend/warp from impact. This is visible (pictured) and gives the foot a slight rock.
The pot is too beautiful to scrap. It is not going to be a museum or collectors piece but in this quality of silver and workmanship it will last a lifetime. A silversmith might straighten the pedestal foot a little.
