Today's featured artifacts are two large silver plated pitchers:
MORR 4532: On the left is a double spouted pitcher embossed with floral and leaf designs. On one side is a blank cartouche while the other side has a cartouche with an engraved griffin. The touch marks include what appears to be an eagle or bird of some kind, possibly a number "3" in script, an animal, and a fouled anchor.
The touch marks to the right are as yet unidentified, leaving the time period and maker a mystery at this point.
|MORR 4531-- Touch Marks|
MORR 4531: On the right is a single spout pitcher with a high, curved handle. The body is embossed with floral and leaf designs. The cartouches are the same on this pitcher, one side is blank while the other has an engraved griffin. The touch marks include possibly three plumes, possibly a number "3" in script, an animal, a fouled anchor, and the letter "T" in script.
