This large impressive copper serving pitcher stands 10.5 tall with large ear handle of typical sea going shape with a flared bottom. It measures 10 across at the base and only 6.5 across at the top rolled brim.

GOD BLESS

KING GEORGE

&

THE VIGILANT

1804

There is an old repair to the bottom front, not visible from above and the bottom itself shows some denting. Beautifully maintained to a great shine, clearly having be loved for many decades and most certainly on display. Extremely impressive and provides a glance into Horatio Nelson's Royal Navy.
