Antique 18th century Samovar / urn. America's independence & victory. Over U.K :

MUSEUM QUALITY ITEM AT A LOW STARTING PRICE, this type just can't be found now other than in a museum so if you want to own a unique piece of history then here's your chance. Late 18th century large Samovar. Excellent condition, made from copper and bronze with a magnificent eagle finial, very large item for what was normally made during this period There are a few others that may become available but none like this with a magnificent eagle finial. Very unusual, it has western pedigree but I can't say for sure if it is American . I have been told that this is an American colonial European peice celebrating Americas independance . Stands straight and level. The picture is in the back yard on a garden chair and it is slightly leaning to fit it in the photo But the item sits level on a flat level surface. Quite large standing at app 51 cm tall, 37 cm across from handle to handle and a heavy weight of app 5 kg. Very decorative, This was a high quality item in this period of time & would have been for a wealthy family / estate, especially with the unusual eagle mount. I cant promise that this low starting price wont increase over time so please feel free to find another comparable rare item the same as this. Please view all the photos as they make up part of the description. PLEASE WAIT for me to send the correct invoice as often s "quotes" are inaccurate. due to the size if this i would assist with pick up if required. PLEASE DO NOT PAY UNTIL YOU HAVE AN ACCURATE POSTAGE PRICE International buyers welcome, please be aware of the postage cost though for insures & registered mail Thank you
