Italian Vintage Solid Silver Wine Jug / Ewer by Zanetti & Pellegrini of Milan (Code 2244)
An early to mid 20th century Italian silver jug from Milan by Zanetti & Pellegrini. It is of classical form with a broad rim and baluster body. The body has polished broad ribs and panels with a stippled textured surface. There are chased acanthus designs and further stylised bosses around the shoulders. The handle is also of acanthus form with scrolling terminals. It is marked Pellegrini to the base along with 800 for the Italian silver standard, there are further control marks which are not struck clearly enough to decipher.
Zanetti & Pelligirini were a high quality low volume silversmiths in Milan and produced larger and special commission pieces rather than general small items. Little is written about the firm, but pieces do come up for sale from time to time. The next owner of this piece will be in a very exclusive club!
Good for period, minor wear as expected, a few minor indents but nothing problematic - see the all round images.
