Striking antique silver plate pitcher is hallmarked for the E.G. Webster & Son Company that operated out of New York. Founded in 1860 by Elizur G. Webster, it was eventually sold to the International Silver Co. in 1928. There is a letter "A" monogrammed on one side in an old cursive font. The pitcher itself is paneled with 8 distinct ribs all around. Under the spout is a raised leafy pattern and below that a fanned vertical design. The antique pitcher has a beaded edge all around the very top rim. The handle is quite ornate with a curled embellishment on the top of it and ornate designs where it attaches to the pitcher base. The 4 feet or short legs also have shell curled shaped designs where they attach to the base of this pitcher.
The pitcher is marked with the star web hallmark and the engraved number 113 on the bottom. Based on the hallmark stamp, this set appears to be from the late 19th century.
8 1/2" tall
8" wide from tip of spout to the end of the handle
base has a 4" diameter
the top opening is 4" across on the side with no spout and 5 1/2" across on the side with the spout
The pitcher is in fair to nice antique condition with wear commensurate with antique age - see photos for detail. There is a small area on the lid rim that is bent downward. The lip of the spout is split on one side. I did not polish this piece as some folks like patina. There is a lot of lovely patina on the pitcher - had a great shabby chic look. Price reflects condition.
This antique piece is approximately 150 years old.
