Equaly well cast vine framed streaming disc centre tapering S-handle. With unique heart shape medallion to lower end. Much like that found on handles of 17th and 18th century tankards.

This rare Scottish 1867 sterling silver Amercrombie flagon is 9 1/2 inches tall and 8 handle to spout.

Thick, heavy guage sterling construction weighs 31 standard ounces.

Hallmarked as shown.

In excellent condition. Rich, lustreous silver patina. The beautifully carved floral streams and raised diamond medallion retain their original crisp, vibrant hand chased detail. Stands perfectly firm on table or display shelf. Cover closes flush. Handle secure and with original heat stops.

For the discerning collector of the finest Victorian silver. Focused upon the most rare designs. A museum worthy Victorian sterling silver Abercrombie style flagon. Excellent condition, near pristine.
