An Edward VII planished silver coffee biggin, Nathan & Hayes, Chester.
Having a part lobed baluster body with conforming foot and lid, heavy gadrooned rim, fruitwood handle and lobed finial.
A stylish piece from George Nathan & Ridley Hayes, the planished or hammered surface showing the influence of the arts and crafts movement. With a lip rather than a spout this is not a coffee pot as such but appears to be inspired by a late Georgian coffee biggin, which would have usually had a stand with a spirit burner to keep the coffee warm. The weight is exceptionally high and a sign of the quality of the piece. Such items are probably not quite as popular now with collectors as they were twenty or more years ago, but this will do well nevertheless.
Height 9.5 inches
I forgot Will have to add at a later date
