This rare Georgian silver ewer was crafted by the most famed of the female silversmiths, Hester Bateman. The graceful silhouette and in-line beading convey the attention to detail for which Bateman is renowned. A rattan-wrapped handle and urn-shaped finial complete this ewer's timeless design. 

Ewers, with their flaring spouts, were historically used for washing your hands at the formal dinner table. One server would hold a basin underneath a guest’s hands while another server poured water from the vessel over their hands. By the 17th century, their purpose had transformed to serve water or wine, and the most refined were crafted of silver, like this example.
