Victorian Pitcher is TRUELY A MASTER PIECE with amazing engraving and a record of Hawaiian history that should be cherished and preserved for many years! The Pitcher is adorned with beautiful relief on the two bands.
The design is as good as it gets. The design engraved on the body is truly spectacular. The Pitcher's Body is covered with hundreds of square dice patterns, and one side has a rectangular engraving of a Hawaiian scenery image.The front is engraved with Presented to Robert Grieve by employees of the Hawaiian Gazette Publishing Co. Truly a beautiful piece of Hawaiian History, and A WORK OF ART. Please note this listing is for the Pitcher only.
The Pitcher estimated measurements are 11" Tall and 11" Wide from spout to Handle. It is very large and heavy.Please note other item shown may be found in other separate listing. The Pitcher comes with a pristine porcelain liner which makes it useable today. The original owner could have possibly used it for display. We have proudly displayed it as a centerpiece in our Victorian Parlor with a matching bride's basket. Beside the normal conditions associated with age, the pre-owned Pitcher is in a very good maintained condition. The Pitcher is very clean with minor surface marks and scratches which are not noticeable, but we always include this info. Since it is a 150 years old. The interior of the Pitcher is pristine.
As we inspect the Pitcher closely, we just noted some minor roughness on the handle which could have occurred during the silver plating process, one shallow dent to the back side which was just noted, and plate loss to the base/bottom of the Pitcher which is never noted while the Pitcher is displayed. Otherwise, the silver plate coverage is very shiny and complete. All of these conditions are not visible while the Pitcher is displayed, and they don't detract from its beauty and documented Hawaiian History. We could describe the condition to be very good to excellent Antique condition. We have proudly displayed it in our home and received many compliments.Don't miss this opportunity to own this beautiful Pitcher. Great additional to any Victorian collection.
