An elegant antique American silver cream pitcher by renowned New York silversmith Myer Myers. Hailing from Myers' desirable, early Rococo period, the three-footed design was only made during a very short-lived time in his career. An understated and exquisite design, this important piece is one of only 380 surviving marked objects by Myers. In addition, as most of these surviving items are religious and commemorative pieces, this piece is one of Myers' few remaining early domestic items known to exist.
