Antique Engraved Eagle Silver Water Pitcher
Large silver plate water pitcher with bold and quite elaborate and highly detailed engraving on all sides. Features a large eagle over the world with flags. Engraved dated 1876. Made for the Centennial in 1876. Probably a silver company’s display piece as companies from all over the world showed on their latest products. It has a few dings and it apparently the most bottom layer of the base got too close to a warming candle and melted thru one layer of the base. The inside bottom is still intact.
