|A coin silver water pitcher or ewer of a classical design, by Baldwin Gardiner & Co. (working in New York from 1827-1847). Circa 1830. Size: 12.75 inches height. 36.5 troy ounces. A fabulous large-sized American water pitcher with a beaded, everted spout and adorned with bands of crisp acanthus decoration applied to the body and circular base. The maker's stamp, B. GARDINER NEW YORK, appears in two arched and opposing, serrated rectangles on the underside of the base. Baldwin Gardiner (& Co.) first entered its mark in Philadelphia, PA between 1814-1817 and then relocated to New York City, where it operated from 1827-1847. Condition: There is some bruising to the body below the spout, but no repairs. This pitcher has descended through the heirs of the Lasak family of New York, and is engraved on the exterior of the foot ring 'F.W.Lasak' (Francis Lasak, ? - 1/28/1881).|
