Superb Solid Silver Fluted Ewer – Early 20th century
This is a heavy and dramatic handled ewer pitcher of solid silver from the hands of a talented Portugese silversmith, and which is hallmarked for 833 fine silver. It dates to the first quarter of the 19th century and displays a classic and wonderfully sculpted form which really draws attention to itself. Even more remarkable is its weight of more than two pounds of silver (actual 904 grams or 29.2 troy ounces).
This is simply a wonderful and well executed pitcher by a Portugese silversmith that has no problems whatsoever and would grace any shelf or table. The ewer has soft older patina which would be brightened if desired with the use of a little silver polish.
Size is 8 1/4 “ high x 5 1/2 ” body diameter x 7 1/2″ maximum width with handle.
