This antique creamer was done in an all over silver lustre application on the exterior and part of the interior on a brown colored body known to give a good deep appearance that imitates sterling silver. The wavy reeded relief adds to the elegance of the piece. Popular in the 1825-1850 period during which this was made, the method was abandoned after this largely because of improvements that were made to silver plating technology. Suitable for display or use.
Size: 4 1/2" to top of handle, 6" from spout to handle, 3" wide.
Condition: Very Good. The lustre is shiny with very little wear, mostly to the end of the handle. There is a little in-the-making chip to the end of the spout as shown which was lustred over during manufacture. No other chips, cracks, or restoration.
Early period antiques are quite old and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing defect or repair. While this is normal and to be expected I note any known issues in the condition descriptions.
