An enormous English antique silver presentation lidded ewer or flagon with a hinged lid and applied multiple stags throughout. Superb three dimensional chasing of trees and flora including exotic ferns. Pairs of applied paw feet to support the base. The inscription in the cartouche is dated 1886. Dated London 1881. The hinge of the lid unscrews and the knuckle comes out of the body for cleaning. the finial is a cast horse. Remarkably deep high relief chasing makes this an extraordinary piece of English silver.
