Unavailable
( THE AUCTION IS FIR THE URN ONLY )The Hot Water Urn is a magnificent piece of HAND WROUGHT repoussed silver . R & W Wilson is a well known Philadelphia maker early in the 19th century. It is hand wrought , with beautiful "C" scrolls and florals reminding us of the early Kirk and Sons holloware. The Chinese man sits atop as the finial , on his tasseled pillow , smoking his pipe .
