Found - no previous history and there is no markings on this item to help indentify. This item is approx 16" tall and 8" dia. the wooden base and upright being hand carved. The sterling silver tank is 8" tall and 6" wide and has a electric heating element. There is a switch on the right side that works on the counter-balance principle when the silver pot is filled will allow the heating element to start heating. When the liquid boils it exits from the bottom of the pot and when allthe liquid is boiled the weight of the now empty pot trips the electical switch to "off".
We have no idea what this is or its origin. Any questions or additional info please contact us. Any help as to its use and age is appreciated
