VINTAGE SILVER PLATED WATER PITCHER

"Is it true mother?" eight-year-old Reginald Buckmor asked as he sat at the dining room table staring intently at a baby photo of himself. The maid reached over his shoulder and began to pour milk into his glass from a decorative silver pitcher. The pointed lip of the pitcher made a crease in the stream of milk as flowed into the boy's glass.

"Is what true?" Mrs. Buckmor responded without looking up, continuing to browse at the society page of the morning paper.

"I don't see one in this picture." Reggie said, still looking at the photo.

"Good gracious Reginald, what are you talking about? She said as she looked up from the newspaper.

"I've heard people say I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth...but I don't see one in this picture."

Mrs. Buckmor turned her gaze toward Jenny the maid who was placing the toast (with crust removed) on young Reginald's plate. Jenny was very careful not to make eye contact with Mrs. Buckmor as she buttered the toast and then spread the precise amount of orange marmalade--too little and the boy wouldn't eat it, too much and he would get it on the corners of his mouth. Nine-year-old boys with orange marmalade on the corners of their mouths was not a look that Mrs. Buckmor appreciated.

ITEM DESCRIPTION:
For sale is a wonderfully elegant silver-plated water pitcher with graceful lines and ornate scroll work on the handle and feet. It stands 9.5" tall and is 8.25" wide at its widest. This piece is perfect for entertaining the Buckmors should they ever come calling to your estate but it would also make a lovely flower vase or accent piece to a cottage chic decor. We found no manufacturer mark on it but have seen identical pitchers made by F.B. Rogers. We are dating it to the 1960's.

CONDITION:
This pitcher is in very good vintage condition with light scratches and good silver plating except for the handle where there the plating has worn down. It has been recently polished so it is nice and shiny but if you prefer it with a more tarnished patina, just give it a few weeks without a polishing. The interior is pretty clean with some tarnishing and light stains.
