A beautiful and heavy sterling silver porringer by the Merrill Shops. Un-ornamented except for the lovely cut-work handle. Another piece where it's uses are limited only by your imagination - from soup to nuts this one will do it all.

In excellent condition by the Merrill Shops of New York, NY. Made c. 1893-1930. No monogram. The bowl is 4.5 inches in diameter and the handle is an additional 2 inches. 1/75 inches tall. To provide you with some perspective, in one photo is the back of my standard-sized business card 3.5 x 2 inches (8.9 x 5 cm).

All photographs and descriptions © Silver Magpies All rights reserved.

Unless otherwise stated, every item offered by Silver Magpies is sterling silver (i.e 925). If a piece is not sterling it is clearly labelled. Occasionally I offer pieces of silver-plate and silver items made from other standards of silver i.e. 800, 830, 900, 950, etc.

Each item offered has been personally hand inspected, researched and cataloged. Every piece is accompanied to its new home by a curator card recording details of provenance, origin and identity in words and photographs.

In contrast to other dealers, my pieces are never machine buffed to re-create a mirror-bright shine as Silver Magpies cherishes and celebrates the living finish of silver. Every Silver Magpies piece is carefully hand-polished. Patina, that lovely soft, grey sheen indicative of use and care, is the jewel in the crown of antique and vintage silver’s many charms. Discerning collectors prize patina, and its loss through over-zealous hand or machine polishing is to be lamented.
