Here is a dramatic and exquisite floral etched and embossed antique Pairpoint New Bedford MA. quadruple silver plate ice water pitcher, with hinged lid, and a screw on cap on the underside of the pitcher for inserting crushed ice. The pitcher measures an impressive 12 3/4" tall to top of lid finial, 6 1/2" across the base and approx. 9 1/2" from handle to spout. There is a white enamel liner (for insulating purposes) inside the pitcher, and on the underside of the pitcher is the number "1848". This pitcher dates from 1894-1899, and is in excellent condition with the exception of tarnish, surface wear, and the upper rim is perhaps slightly out of round, but there does not appear to be any dinging.
