This silver ewer by Georgian silversmith Hester Batemans illustrates her unmatched eye for graceful form and understated beauty. Crafted in a neoclassical motif, the ewer displays a high level of refinement. Its classic form is enlivened by Bateman’s signature beading, a scrolling wooden handle and finely engraved decorative elements, including floral swags and an intricate coat of arms at the center.

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. By the 17th century, their purpose had transformed to serve water or wine, and the most refined were crafted of silver, like this example.
