Shiny (cleaned outside only) silver plated Pitcher "Grand Hotel Margitsziget " from Budapest, Hungary.
Wonderful item, will be perfect for an elegant diner time with friends or for a lovely everyday Breakfast!

Date: Late 19thC to 20thC
"Grand Hotel Margitsziget " is a well-known Hotel, built in 1873 according to the plans of one of the most famous Hungarian architects, Miklós Ybl.
In April 1972, Danubius Hotels and Spa Co. is established by the Ministry of Domestic Trade, which has reassigned Grand Hotel Margitsziget (Budapest), Hotel Helikon (Keszthely), and transferred the construction license to Danubius to build Budapest Hilton.
Beaten by the tempests of history was re-opened in 1986 completely refurbished".

"ALPAKKA" mark under which referred and called Alpacca Silber I (3 layers of silver).
Quite heavy, look LIKE silver sterling as no really loose just tiny bit around the feet and handle.

"The Alpacca alloy was developed in 1823 by the German chemist Dr. Ernst August Geitner (1783-1852). It was very similar in its appearance to silver, but significantly cheaper. Therefore, this new alloy was first called "Argentan". It consisted of 20% nickel, 55% copper and 25% zinc. The new silver-imitating alloy soon became very popular. The Gebrueder Henninger (Henninger Bros.) proposed a similar alloy (5-30% nickel, 45-70% copper and 8-45% zinc with trace amounts of lead, tin and iron) which they called "Neusilber". Later both Argentan and Neusilber were used under the trade name of Alpacca (or Alpakka). The great advantage of the use of Alpacca alloy as the base metal for silver plating is that the appearance of the objects does not change significantly with the wearing away of the silver layer".

It's a high quality of silver plated as it got triple-layers silver coating.
