Stunning, antique, silver plate, insulated, water pitcher by Rogers Smith & Co circa 1857-1862. This tall pitcher has a lobed body with fleur de lis style design near the top and bottom, scrolled handle and a grapes and leaves finial. The lit is multi-hinged to keep ice from flowing out. Although it has some wear, this pitcher is still very functional for use in that it still holds water. This hefty piece is a stunner.
Measurements: approx 13" tall x 10" wide handle to spout. approx 8" diameter at its widest.
Marks: On the bottom Rogers Smith & Co Hartford Conn
This pitcher is still extremely shiny. There is wear to some of the raised areas and handle (hard to notice without looking), a tiny chip in the plating on top of the spout (see pic) and some plating loss at the underside of the spout and inside bottom and some wear around the rim where the lid sits. No obvious damage
