Aesthetic Silver Plate Creamer & Sugar Birds Parcel Gilt Pitcher, Jug Pine Cones For Sale
Aesthetic Movement Creamer & Sugar Bowl
Aesthetic Movement Creamer & Sugar Bowl
Outstanding late Victorian silverplated creamer and sugar bowl with an aesthetic motif that includes long tailed birds, pine cones, daisies, and geometric shapes. These two were made by Meriden Silver Plate Co. of Meriden Connecticut and dates from the 1870’s-1880’s. Both pieces are stamped with the design number 1421. This elegant pair was never engraved with a monogram or inscription. The cream pitcher has a parcel gilt interior.
This lovely pair is in good condition with a brilliant shine, but both have some condition issues to note. Both pieces have some wear to the silver here and there. The worst of the wear is located on the sugar lid and around the flared outer “collar” of the cream jug. There are scratches present on both items as well. The sugar lid was dropped at one time and has sustained a bend in it, as well as a small gouge on the outer edge. When the lid is on the base there is a gap on one side because it does not sit flat. The finial is slightly crooked as well. One of the feet on the cream pitcher has been bent, but the creamer stands well with no wobble. Both pieces have scratches and a small number of pits on their inner floor, but the interiors are quite clean. The gilt interior on the creamer has thinned over the years and the gold is now a much paler yellow than it was originally.
