Lebolt Sterling Silver Arts & Crafts Milk Pitcher, Chicago, c. 1920
A lovely example of hand made silver from Lebolt, this form is reinterpreted with a modern accent. The bulbous jug has a wonderful pinched collar and spout. The top rim has an applied wire for strength and decoration. A common practice within the silver shops of Chicago was to cut and apply monograms as can be seen here with the applied 'MK'. Attached is a bold and graceful c-shaped handle with flat sides. This elegant small pitcher has a lovely hammered surface.
This arts & crafts pitcher is marked underneath 'Lebolt' below their insignia and 'HAND MADE/ STERLING/ 2 PINTS/ 653'. It measures 6.75 inches wide across the handle and spout by 5.25 inches high, weighs 10.85 troy ounces and is in very good/ excellent antique condition.
