Seller: essexriverantiques (1,206) 100%, Location: Essex, Massachusetts, Ships to: US, Item: 143327189041 Presented is a wonderful old Sheffield silverplate pitcher or ewer. This piece dates to around the late 1700s or very early 1800s. The pitcher is made in a beautiful, classical form, with fluted decoration around the neck and a bold beaded rim. The body is adorned with hanging swags, nicely detailed and well done. The pitcher has a scrolled, reeded handle with a heart-shaped flourish and stands on a square pedestal base. The front of the pitcher, beneath the spout, has an applied plaque with an engraved crest, of an arm dexter emerging from a crown, holding a cross crosslet fitchy, beneath the Latin motto 'In Hoc Signo Vinces' or 'In this sign, you will conquer.' Though this motto is most commonly associated with the Knights Templar, this particular crest is attributed to the Watson-Taylor family by Fairbairn's Book of Crests of the Families of Great Britain and Ireland. This piece is in great condition. The silver plating is in good shape, with no obvious wear/bleed. There are no splits, no dents, no monogram removals, and no repairs. The pitcher stands about 11 ¼ inches tall and measures about 4 ½ inches at the widest point (including the handle). The base is about 3 ¼ inches square. The pitcher has a capacity of 4 cups (32 fluid ounces/0.94 liter). The pitcher weighs 1247 grams or 2.8 pounds. -jm Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution Age: 1800-1849, Composition: Silverplate
