Worden-Munnis hand hammered sterling silver water pitcher. Worden-Munnis was a Boston, MA silversmith 1940-1964, acquired by Old Newbury Crafters.

Heavy, quality construction, with elegant lines and a refined finish that only quality handmade silver has. It stands 10 1/4″ tall and weighs just over 32 troy ounces. It features a wonderfully shaped ebony handle and subtle hammer marks throughout. This moderne style is indicative of Georg Jensen in both style and quality. Superb original condition.
