We are pleased to offer this extremely rare early Victorian Scottish sterling silver flagon.
In the Abercrombie style.
Only a small number crafted in the early- mid Victorian period. More often seen are Abercrombie salvers, and to lesser extent goblets. This is our first flagon or pitcher.
Classic tapering cylindrical form.
Adorned with series of brilliant raised florette and diamond on lattice surface displays to centre. Framing elegant raised bead framed oval medallion. Alternating with unique florette, leaf and bead streams on stain. Set in scallop and spire framing.
A most unique interpretation of the Abercrombie diamond on panel design.
Cover topped with elabrate beaded panel cushion and globe finial. Atop conforming florette and diamond and leafy panels below.
Equaly well cast vine framed streaming disc centre tapering S-handle. With unique heart shape medallion to lower end. Much like that found on handles of 17th and 18th century tankards.
This rare Scottish 1867 sterling silver Amercrombie flagon is 9 1/2 inches tall and 8 handle to spout.
Thick, heavy guage sterling construction weighs 31 standard ounces.
Hallmarked as shown.
In excellent condition. Rich, lustreous silver patina. The beautifully carved floral streams and raised diamond medallion retain their original crisp, vibrant hand chased detail. Stands perfectly firm on table or display shelf. Cover closes flush. Handle secure and with original heat stops.
For the discerning collector of the finest Victorian silver. Focused upon the most rare designs. A museum worthy Victorian sterling silver Abercrombie style flagon. Excellent condition, near pristine.
Please feel free to inquire directly about this, or any item we've listed. Whether the item is alone or part of a set. We very much welcome your interest. We are collectors first. As such, we are quite easy to work with.
We happily combine items when shipping, saving you costs. We ship twice weekly, usually US Postal Priority. Fully insured for domestic packages, and air parcel overseas. We charge a bit more than actual cost for custom size boxes, shipping materials and to pay for professional packing.
We make great effort to accurately describe each item listed. Returns are accepted, if either condition, country of origin or dating is significantly incorrect. In such cases we refund your shipping costs as well. Like you, we are only human, and make mistakes. Hopefully, not too many.
Remember, the items you see are antiques. Hence, have an expected amount of wear from normal use. As such, returning an item because we failed to mention the tiniest bit of wear, or barely discernible flaw is not acceptable. Nor do we accept returns based on buyer's remorse. Nor change of taste, or because a buyer did not realize how "small" four inches might be once in hand.
