This is an exceptionally RARE 1870's Tilting Water Set!! Signed by famous maker, " The Meriden Silver Plate Co. which was founded in 1869 in Meriden, Connecticut by Charles Casper. They were one of the original companies that joined together to form the International Silver Co. in 1898. This set has a pattern number 14 on both the tray and pitcher and is marked with a patent date of 1872 . This set is In exceptionally fine condition, considering it is approximately 142 years old!! The pitcher is double walled for insulation with a WHITE PORCELAIN LINING that is in PERFECT CONDITION which makes this set totally usable (so many of these sets can only be for looks due to rusting and silver loss inside the picther - NOT the case with this one!!!) This elegant serving set has all of the bells and whistles - 4 HUGE Griffins, "Moses on the mount on the top" and OUTSTANDING and VERY DETAILED Detail!!! The original matching and signed goblet is included. There is minor wear and a few very minor dings for character - nothing that detracts from this AMAZING set!!
