This is a stunning and intricately designed antique sterling silver wine ewer/claret jug that measures about 11 1/2" tall by about 4 1/2" across the body and 7 1/2" across the handle and spout. This is the first of several wonderful items to be listed from a fine Texas estate, so come back often to see what else is available. It is appropriately marked as made by Gorham silversmiths in London in 1902. It is also marked both on the bottom with Mappin & Webb London and with the Mappin & Webb mark next to the Gorham mark on the neck of the piece. Lightly polished to show the gorgeous design but to maintain some of the wonderful patina.
The condition is excellent with no damage at all (any marks you can see in the photos are just reflections).
It weighs a substantial 846 grams.
Texas residents to pay 8 1/4% sales tax or provide exemption information.
