Canadian Sterling Silver Gravy Boat in a Colonial Revival Style made by an unidentified Canadian Silversmith, c.1900. There are 2 Lion Passant pseudo marks with Sterling in between marked on the bottom of the boat. We are not 100% sure of the Canadian attribution, but it does seem logical.
Regardless of the country of origin, this is a very elegant gravy boat, with a scalloped border and a double C scroll handle having an Acanthus leaf thumb piece. The boat sits on three shell and hoof feet.
This large, useful gravy boat is 7 5/8" long, 3 7/8" wide, 4 1/2" tall and weighs 262 grams or 8.4 ozs. Troy.
The excellent original condition and clear, crisp detail, with no monograms, removals, repairs or alterations, make this an especially attractive offering.
The soft, warm, original antique finish is present, with no buffing or machine polishing.
