Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this rare and unique Victorian solid silver milk jug/pitcher made by London silversmith Thomas Smily in 1876.
The most evident highlight point is the finely chased figural 'tavern scene' in which several gentlemen are portrayed enjoying their alcoholic beverages.
Additionally, the background is stippled which creates greater contrast between the figures' faces and the further embellishments of the grapevines surrounding them.
The handle of the pitcher is equally intricately crafted with a naturalistic design of a grapevine.
The interior of the pitcher is gilded and remains in good condition.
A full set of hallmarks are present on the base.
A wonderful collector's item with a unique tavern scene ideal to add a figural item to your collection whether be it for display or usage.
