Elegant antique French Napoleon III era sterling silver solitaire, bachelor's coffee or tea pot, perhaps milk pot or creamer with smooth baluster shaped body and 1849-1861 Martial Fray silversmith mark! Nothing overly frilly about this little treasure, just a mirror like body, spout & turned finial and with the original serpentine carved ebony or ebonized handle. The lid and body are marked with the French Minerve or Minerva, the tiny number "1" within those marks means itâs in .950 silver (95% pure and higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The silversmith mark is for Martial Fray, Paris circa 1849-1861. A lovely little, perfectly usable pot. Spoil yourself every morning.
Very good condition. Possibly a tiny dimple or two but no larger dents, damage or repairs. See pictures for measurements.
