My purchase was very last minute and Lara made it happen. I wish these gorgeous vintage pieces with a history could come with a little history. Thank you !
Vintage, silver plate/ soldered, samovar, coffee urn trophy. Lovely, fluted body with scrolling handles, legs, spigot and wood bun spacers under the lion style feet. Includes the burner. This is silver soldered so it has more silver on it than regular silver plate. The top comes off the bottom for easier storing. This was a trophy for the University Club Backgammon Championship. Although the coffee urn is antique/ vintage, the engraving for the trophy was for 2003. Everything is in working order and in great condition. A classic piece to have for luncheons, parties or showers.
Measurements: approx 20" Tall, 7 1/2" diameter at its widest.

The samovar is in good vintage condition. May have some typical signs of age and use such as slight surface scratches, ever so slight base metal showing through to raised areas of some of the lobes (only noticeable in certain light), possible tarnish, tiny dings and/ or polish residue and some slight wear to wood finish on the handles (which can easily be fixed). The inside looks good with little spotting typical for silver soldered items. One of the wood bun spacers is missing but can easily be replaced. No obvious damage.
