The Pilgrim, Reed And Barton, Sterling:
Up for sale are a coffee pot, sugar dish (no lid), and a creamer - three lovely pieces from Reed and Barton - of their pattern number 750 "The Pilgrim". All three pieces bear Reed and Barton's makers mark, year mark symbol (denoting they were made in 1957), and pattern name and number. In addition to these markings, the coffee pot bears the number seven offset to the right of the other marks which I assume means this was the seventh set of this pattern to be made? That is the only piece of information I have not been able to find out for sure. I have included pics to show the most prominent dings. There are three on the pitcher that are the most noticeable but even those do not take away from the beauty of these pieces as it is not noticeable unless the pot is held above eye level or turned on its side or upside down. The other pieces have a few dings as well but nothing substantial. I have photos of those but they are so slight I hasd to study the photos to see them even with knowing they were there. Some are simply so slight they did not show in the photos. I have included a couple of photos of the coffee pot handle and lid to highlight a bit of the the beautiful craftsmanship that these pieces display. This is easily the most beautiful and sterling I have ever seen. The handle of the coffee pot has two ivory pieces of joinery and pins that are visible which are shown in the photos. I took it to a local jewelry store and verified this was how the handle was supposed to appear. It is exquisite. The hinge is in excellent shape. The lid is not off center and closes well. The spout is not dinged or bent whatsoever. All three pieces sit level. All handles are in excellent shape and have perfectly placed spurs where your fingers would naturally need a little extra help to grip the serviceware to use for pouring or passing. I just can't say enough about how pleasing to the eye these pieces are.
