Pending sale, thank you.

A fun and robust 19th century American coin Silver pitcher by Jones Ball & Co. of Boston. Nice strong gadroon around the top rim. Wonderful "armorial" of 3 stags in a cartouche on one side, initials "W A G 1853" on the other. Maker's mark reads "Jones Ball & Co." "Boston" & "Pure Coin Silver". Jones Ball & Poor is listed in the Wyler book on old silver p. 298. Said to be active ca. 1840. Whether Poor joined before or after is anyone's guess.

8.5" high x 8" widest spout to handle. A very small dimple as can be seen in the pic. No breaks. Otherwise good condition for old estate silver with signs of usage. Weighs 22 regular ounces & holds 4 pints. Very good condition polishes beautifully. Some scratch marks on the bottom from rubbing & past polishing. Outside surface of pitcher is very good takes bright polish as coin silver should.

If you like old and unique American silver this is well worth considering. Doubt there is another.
