Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this solid silver Victorian wine ewer made by the renowned makers - Edward, John & William Barnard in London, 1843.
The jug features an array of fine Victorian decorations and embellishments such as the band of chased leaves around the top and bottom waist of the body.
An applied cast handle in the form of an acanthus scroll is present on the side conjoining with a hinged lid at the top. The lid features a realistic floral finial that aids with the opening of the top.
The interior of the ewer is gilt with a beautiful rich gold tone.
The jug is supported by a widened feet which provides a sturdy base for the ewer to stand steady when filled with beverages.
The entire body presents a 'panelled' design with each side finished to a high mirror-like aesthetic.
The hallmarks are present on the neck and interior lid of the ewer, however, the hallmarks on the outside have been worn quite heavily and are difficult to make out.

Good Condition - The ewer is in good antique condition considering its age. For accuracy, there are some light bruising where prior dents may have been taken out. Additionally, some very small solders are present around the top band of leaves (as shown in the last few images). These are quite hard to tell and do not detract from the overall aesthetic nor usage of the item. There are no leaks either. Please refer to the photographs to examine the condition in further detail.
