This magnificent antique Victorian English sterling silver wine ewer has a helmet shaped form onto a knopped pedestal and circular spreading foot, in the traditional George I ewer style.

The lower portion of the large body is embellished with impressive applied fluted style decoration with alternating fancy incurved terminals.

The upper portion of the Victorian ewer is embellished with an applied girdle style design which connects an impressive shell motif from terminal of the handle and the exceptional textured, splayed fluted and scrolling leaf design to the underside of the flared lip.

The decoration to the body incorporates the contemporary bright cut engraved crest* depicting a cross crosslet fitchée surmounted by a sword in saltire proper, above the motto 'Crux mihi grata quies' - the cross gives me welcome rest.

This magnificent silver wine ewer is fitted with an exceptional and impressive chased decorated elevated, opposing scroll handle accented with large single leaf designs.

The interior of the jug features the original gilding.
