Baldwin Gardiner Extremely Fine American Classical Silver Water Pitcher, New York, c. 1830's


This outstanding example of American classical silver is by one of the foremost silversmiths and entrepreneurial 'decorators' of his time. Beautifully proportioned, this vasiform water pitcher has die-rolled beaded bands at the foot, neck and rim. The bold spout and rim are shaped to reflect the lower edge of a classical Roman helmet. The classical motifs continue with the well cast and chased acanthus decoration on the handle. Overall, this is an extremely fine and elegant example of American classical silver. This striking pitcher is not monogrammed (although one may have been removed), measures 9.75 inches high by 10 inches across the handle, weighs approximately 30 troy ounces and is in very good condition.
