Upfor sale is a Victorian stately creamer jug or creamer by Mead and Sons, Philadelphia, Pa. According to the book American Silver Manufacturers by Dorothy Rainwater, pg, 107, the Company of Mead and Sons was formed in or around 1846 by John O. Mead after he returned from a trip to England to learn the art of Electro silver plating in the 1840's. By 1859 Mead was considered the first successful American electro silver plater around. Mead used the Coin Mark for his business until the late 1850's when the firm name became Filey and Mead. Later still the firm name was changed to Mead and Robins. That said, this dates the cream pitcher to the 1850's. It is a beauty standing 7.5 inches tall and 6 inches wide from handle to spout. The inside is clean and usable, no dings or dents and beautiful silver plate that needs just a little polishing. There is a monogram on one side which is impossible to make out. It could be an FCM but because it is script and very decorative I cant read it. Looks more like a design than a monogram. This is a fantastic Victorian Civil War Era tea or cream pitcher.
