DESCRIPTION----- . Here we have a rare and Important Gorham Sterling silver ca.1900 Universal Exposition special order massive Tea kettle urn with original burner with hairy paw feet. This came from Nicholas Colella who purchased this from the former manager of Gorham. Colella was a famous Dealer and collector. This was said to have been exhibited at the Universal Exposition in Paris ca.1900 along with other larger and smaller pieces. This is signed in two placed with Gorham Special order three letter mark "JAK" which most who collect Gorham seriously that this is the Special order mark and would only be made for a prominant client or the company themselves such as an Exposition. I do believe Nicholas who did state this was from the company directly purchased in the 1950's as their personal collection. This has incredible long hairy paw feet that turn into columns and incredible hand chased work with Ball feet sitting upon a round plinth. The original burner is present and there is no cracks or breaks or dents anywhere. No burn marks. This was definitely meant for show, but holds water and when the valve is shut not a drop comes out. I filled it to the top with water and not a drop came out. Standing almost 17" tall at 16 1/2 x 10 1/2 from handle to handle. Weighing a massive 85.8 regular ounces of sterling silver or 2405 grams. This piece is appraised 3-5 times the ounce value. The last special order piece sold here on for over $10,000.00 and you will not see another example like this again. The piece has three areas where there are Gorham company marks and sterling. On the very bottom is marked. Above the burner and on the burner. Very important because they rarely marked a piece three times like this. There was a full provenance with the piece, when Nick had it but the family said it would stay with the estate rider. We ship ALL over the world. Thank YOU!!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION BELOW
SHIPPING-Within US. Iship All over the US. Please take into account that shipping to California cost's twice that of shipping to New York for example. Ido invoice higher for California addresses, so please ask if you want to know how much more.
Iship all over the world, and ship USPS (EMS) Express with tracking (for both our protection) and because of customs in most countries holding items up to a week or two after shipment, Iask that all Foreign buyers take this into account and any response relevant to any excess in shipping time is null and void, and is not our fault.
I SHIP ALL PACKAGES WITHIN 2-8 BUSINESS DAYS DEPENDING UPON THE ITEM WON. A FINE PIECE OF PORCELAIN, GLASS, SILVER OR ANY ANTIQUE REQUIRES ATTENTION TO PACKING, MATERIALS, AND TIME. I PUT A GREAT DEAL OF TIME INTO PROPER SHIPPING AND I AM NOT AN EXPRESS STATION (MEANING IF YOU WANT IT IN TWO DAY YOU MUST CONTACT PRIOR TO THE sale ENDING) I WORK VERY HARD AT PROVIDING THE BEST SHIPPING SERVICE, WHICH IS AS IMPORTANT AS WINNING AN ITEM. I SHIP USPS PRIORITY MAIL WITHIN THE UNITED STATES.

We go to great lengths to bring the finest quality on with s. Many people are astounded at the quality we consistently offer and are repeat buyers. Often times we put collections together just so that you will have a choice within that category.. Often times you will search for quality antiques and there will be few if ANY offers on many of theitems. Many people are very suprised to seethere are offerson all of my items. I don't think there are too many sellers out therewilling to let the market decide the true value of an objectI ABSOLUTELY INTEND TO SELL TO THE HIGHEST buyer.It's notunusual for me to spend a day or two driving to an sale orworking with estate sellersto find one or two good items that week andlist them on only to sell an item at a loss. I work at the fringe of current market trends and know what people are looking for. I often see my items at antique shows selling for three, four times what they sold for here on .

We do not charge a handling fee with shipping.We are now listingshipping price, but please take into consideration these prices are "Without" insurance and we ask that you "WAIT" to pay for won items after the sale so we may add the necessary Insurance (required) into the invoice. Again! Do not pay for the item until we send you aninvoice through . These prices are also for East coast costs and West of the Rockies will require an additional charge.

Please be "Confident" in knowing I don't doctor offers and stand by the credo of morals, market price, and money. I wish I could be as transparant as scotch tape, but because of the infestation of scammers out there, you just have to trust in someone. In my sales, you see what you get. That's what "Todays" current value of that item. Though on one never knows! We have seen stellar prices for items that turned out to be winners. I do want to add a however. I see many of the items my customers purchase from me at shows, and sales I attend going for double what they paid here. While I believe I set the price, I also believe I set the standard.
Please look at my "Sellers Other items page" for a look at all of our best items we are listing this month. Many of these aresuperb. Webelievethese are the best pieces and it should be an important decision. All sales are "as is", where is and Ido not Guarantee any antique or it's value as it's a matter of matter of market shifts and current economies. Buy what you love and you will always be paid back. Antiques are a fantastic green item.
