Sorry, this item is out of stock.

Hester Bateman is one of the most famous names and English silversmithing and is often termed the "Queen of English Silversmiths". This beautiful silver helmet-shaped cream jug does her enduring reputation justice and has an attractive embossed design featuring ribbon-tied swags and festoons that is typical of the 1770's and Neo-Classical period. 

The cream pitcher stands on a round pedestal foot and has an interior that was gilt at a later date to give an extra feeling of exuberance. It benefits from having no personalised engravings and a good set of hallmarks. It is in fine, antique condition.
