A highly decorative and stylish early 19th century Dutch Toleware coffee urn which is elegantly made from solid pewter. It stands on three tall cabriole legs which are raised onto turned wooden bun feet designed not to transfer heat and damage polished surfaces. The bulbous body has a finely shaped handle on one side and a brass pouring tap opposite. Above the flared neck is fitted with an elegant domed bell shaped lid which has a matching turned wooden knob/ finial for safe lifting when hot. The urn is finely finished in black lacquer which is then decorated by hand with gold Chinoiserie Chinese design with a central view of storks in water with tall exotic foliage to each side. There is further gilt decoration in the form of Greek key boarders, pin lines and highlighted edges. The urn is in remarkable condition with very little damage or loss to the original decoration. There is some light crazing but the patination and polished finish are very pleasing.
Circa 1830
