Rare Antique Double Walled Pitcher, Meriden Britannia Co.
Circa 1850's Silver Double Metal Walled


This Ornate Water Pitcher has a finial on the cover which is a grape cluster, the spout is the most intricate, well detailed face of a man with a long elegant beard and such warm smiling eyes! The work that went into all the detail on this pitcher is just amazing, an art that is long gone. Hold onto this piece of history by owning this beautiful work of art!

The double metal walled inside dates it to the early to mid 1850's as in the late 1850's they switched to the porcelain lining.

Meriden Britannia (in Meriden, CT) was originally a pewter manufacturer, and they still made pewter in the 1850s--so this piece seems to be from the early period of their transition from pewter to electroplated silver (which was often plated over pewter, early on). Which explains why the few you may come across that look like this look to be all pewter as their silverplate has worn off.

This pitcher stands 12 1/4" Tall in all its glory!

The condition of this piece is very good as shown in my pictures.

It is over 150 years old and still retains most of its silverplate, I have not polished it for fear of doing it improperly, but it does look like it will shine up really nicely if one wanted to do that!

Please look at the pictures carefully as they are a large part of my description.
