Seller: deaccessionproject (105) 100%, Location: Niantic, Connecticut, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 223600822742 Beautiful statement piece. This 10 1/4" tall pitcher was crafted by James W Tufts in Boston. It is styled in what I believe is called the Aesthetic Movement- art for art's sake. So even though this is a pitcher to be used, it is a work of art with its hammered background and featured moth, exquisitely detailed flowers and leaves, and a fanciful bird. Please let me know if you would like any more close up photos of the details of this pitcher. The pitcher is also a commemorative piece; it is hand engraved in an old English style font- "Dr. Dudley Allen from R G H". I am guessing that R G H might be R??? General Hospital? Just a guess. Pitcher is so well made and heavy. Condition is good; i have not attempted to polish the pitcher to remove the tarnish. There are some places that have some white dried silver polish. I did not notice any place that the silver plate was missing. The base of the pitcher does have a dent that I have not attempted to straighten it. The pitcher was probably dropped sometime during its 100+ year life. Small dent that is only noticeable when you look really closely. See photo #7 just under the bottom of the handle. There is also a small spot on the base where there is a little split in the metal. I wanted to call out all of these condition spots, so please look at all photos carefully. Overall, I do not think that these detract from the unique beauty of this antique. Please email me with any questions and please check my other listings. I am listing several pieces of quadruple plate from my collection and I am happy to combine shipping on multiple purchases. Check all shipping options as this pitcher is heavy and I will happily ship the way that you like at the right price. Condition: Please see listing description and all photos., Style: Victorian, Age: 1850-1899, Pattern: Aesthetic, Brand: James, Composition: Silverplate
