Check out this GORGEOUS Antique Hollow-ware Water Pitcher by The Homan American Silver Plate Company!

This grand old tarnished beauty stands 7" tall on her four dainty little feet, 8.5" across from her graceful curvy handle to the lacy edge of her generous pour spout.
The simple act of pouring a glass of water from this elegant antique will make you feel like a princess, for real.

If you enjoy the darkened patina of tarnished vintage silver, this pitcher is picture perfect! Otherwise she could use a really good polishing. I've left that choice entirely up to you.

She's been in service for a very long time, her plating is still very much intact, but please note that there are some scratches and a shallow 1/2" dent in her midsection. (Please use the Zoom tool to take a good close look.)
The Homan Manufacturing Company's history dates back to 1847. Henry Homan and Asa F. Flagg formed a partnership in Cincinnati, Ohio for the manufacture of pewter wares.
After Henry died, his widow and sons ran the firm until 1887. During this period, they changed over a great deal of their production to electroplating with silver and sometimes gold.

Between the years of 1896 and 1904 the firm was listed as the Homan Silver Plate Co. and were well known for ecclesiastical designs (chalices, beakers, tankards, etc.) Homan also had many commissions from the Ohio and Mississippi riverboat lines for the manufacturing of luxury equipment ranging from silver plated swivel lamps to fancy silver plated water pitchers. (Like this one!)
