This is a large exquisite Gorham sterling silver water pitcher. The handle, cast and applied, and neck is simple and elegant while the body of the pitcher has a matte finish ornamented by a lovely die-rolled band of nine different floral repeating panels. The front has been beautifully engraved with the monogram “HRC”. The base of the pitcher has been marked by the Gorham trademark, “STERLING”, “N” (the mark used in the year 1881), and an inscription reading “Mrs. Geo. W. Morgan/ 1795/ Re made for/ Mrs. Geo. C. Carson/ 1881”. Finding a piece inscribed with ‘remade’ is unusual. In earlier times it was common to ‘refashion’ a piece, but it became less common in the late 18th/early 19th centuries as antique silver became more highly prized. The pitcher measures approx. 11” tall and weighs approx. 43 troy ounces. It is in very good antique condition, with a few tiny, virtually unnoticeable dings…not surprising on a piece over 130+ years old.
