SPECTACULAR AND UNUSUAL 1871 STERLING SILVER HUNT & ROSKELL EWER, DESIGNED BY STORR

Description:
Spectacular Hunt & Roskell 1870 ewer of a very unusual shape, inspired in a classic Greek vessel, called “askos”, a subject which was in high fashion at the time of its conception, in the light of all new archaeological discoveries.

It was designed by Storr, and made by successors, the royal silversmiths Hunt & Roskell, this ewer has a matt background due to the ubiquitous punching, which contrasts with the shiny goat figures sitting on the mouth, and vines and angel which form and decorate the handle.

It is fully marked for the standard, town and silversmith to the left of the handle, and the name of “Hunt & Roskell – Late Storr and Mortimer” appears also on the foot, by the serial number 5648.

The handle does also sport an armorial decoration of a unicorn holding a Roman fasce (bound bundle of wooden rods with an axe), and with a crescent moon on its hindquarters. It has three Gothic initials incised underneath (W.H.H.?).
The inscription “Jany 1st 1781” (for January 1st 1781) appears incised under the base.

Maximum dimensions:
21.5cm (height) x 19.5cm (length) x 10.7cm (width)
