About this item

It looks like a Samovar but it is in fact called a water or tea machine. When you had guests for tea in 1831 it was very practical to have running heated water during the Tea Party. Stacked charcoal within the kettle tube assured this. This particular Tea Machine was created in Copenhagen in 1831. Its made entirely in copper forged and shaped by hand. The brass spigot is a simple yet brilliant mechanical everlasting feature. The handles are made from solid ebony with bone detailing. The ball shaped 'feet', lid top and spigot are made from Walnut. Its is fully functional Tea Urn but it would in addition serve greatly as a well balanced antique centerpiece.
It is imprinted with the 3 towers of Copenhagen and was made by an anonymous danish master in 1831. It has a regal provenance and was a part of the inventory at Skovsbo Estate/Castle in Ullerslev Denmark.
Good condition.
Very well kept, intact and fine antique condition. One or two barely noticeable dents to each side. It has been polished and serviced.
Consistent with age and use.
