Aesthetic silver Plate Creamer & Sugar Bowl, Victorian, Antique Spooner Or Vase For Sale
Ornate 19th Century Silver Plate
Ornate 19th Century Silver Plate
Large and ornate late Victorian creamer and sugar bowl in the Aesthetic Movement style. This pair was made by The Meriden Britannia Co. of Meriden, Connecticut and date from the 1870’s-1890’s. They are style number 1919 which features repousse foliate decorations in a diagonal banner across the sides of each piece. These two have no monograms or inscriptions and their interiors are parcel gilt. The sugar bowl may have had a lid originally but it does not have one now. Measured at the handles, the sugar stands 7 1/8” (18 cm) tall, and the cream pitcher is 7 3/8” (18.8 cm) tall.
Condition: This pair is in fair condition, as it has quite a bit of wear to the silver layer. There are no breaks or repairs and the only dent we found was on the top rim on one side of the creamer (see photo). Both pieces have many surface scratches. The gilt inner surfaces have worn some over the years and the gold is now paler than it was originally. The interior of the sugar bowl has pitting as one would expect to find on a piece that was used as a planter at one time. This gorgeous open sugar bowl could certainly be put to use as a spooner or a vase, as the inner condition would not be an issue.
