"This vast empire on which the sun never sets, and whose bounds nature has not yet ascertained."

The British Empire during the nineteenth century was one that truly spanned the globe, that reached all four corners of the earth and that left its mark on every continent. The expansive reach of the United Kingdom is perhaps best symbolized by her mighty shipping lines, flying the Union Jack across the high seas to far-flung ports in lands that were all but unknown.  One of the many shipping companies capturing this expansive spirit is the British & Burmese Steam Navigation Company.

Formed in 1874, the British & Burmese Steam Navigation Company began operating regular steamship service carrying both passengers and cargo between Glasgow, Scotland and Burma (today, Myanmar) in Southeast Asia. Located along the trade routes to China, India, Australia and New Zealand, Burma was relatively wealthy and part of Britain's constellation of colonies.

From the great ocean liners of the British & Burmese Steam Navigation Company, we are proud to offer this extremely rare, magnificent Silverplate Water Pitcher with Lid. Of commanding stature, this glorious piece represents the apex of passenger amenities from the Golden Age of Travel.

This gleaming, one-of-a-kind pitcher is side-marked with the shipping company's classic belt and buckle logo displaying their house flag in the center. Produced by England's esteemed Elkington silversmiths, the pitcher is bottom-stamped with the date code for its year of manufacture: 1888.

A gorgeous piece of historic oceanliner silver with an exotic and storied provenance, this beautiful pitcher is sure to be the centerpiece of your collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good original antique condition with only discreet signs of age and use, the worst of which being scratches to the bottom interior of the pitcher. 12"H x 10.75" wide including handle.
