A beautiful, sleek, mid-century tall ewer or pitcher made in Columbia ca 1950. Hand wrought from 900 silver, the pitcher has a minimalist tall baluster form, the rounded body stretching up through a long neck to end in a thick applied lip of Art Nouveau-like swirls and leaves. The jug has a generous curved handle. The spun foot is stamped in the center with Columbia's shield mark embossed with E.Q (maker's mark) and 0.900 (silver purity). The pitcher looks to have been made in three pieces and there are faint lines of fusion around the body and near the top.
The jug is 10 3/8" high, 6" from handle to spout, and 4" diameter around the bulbous part of the body. Weight is a hefty 516.4 grams, 16.6 ounces troy. Condition is excellent.
