Repousse Coin Silver Pitcher, Grapes Vines, Jones Shreve Brown, Boston 1855-1860

Description:  Boston, Coin Silver Water Pitcher with heavily Repousse grapes, vines and leaves, a prominent beaded border on mouth and spout with delicate chased surface work on leaves, handle and thumb rest.  It has a bold footed base. The vessel is thickly walled. Heavy with 23 ounces of silver. Evidence of the silversmith’s handwork is the  mark he punched(left on the bottom) into the flat sheet of silver as a center place mark to raise the vessel.  Hallmarked and Stamped on the bottom is:  

“Jones Shreve & Brown Co.



It would be a rather futile search to locate a silversmith who could accomplish this work today. And if you could, the cost would be upwards of $10,000.00.  

With the massive destruction of silver objects in the last couple of years to make ingots and coins, preserving what is still available is important historically.
