Tiffany and Company was the leading retailer of silver in New York City at the time this pitcher was made. Although the firm eventually had its own manufacturing capabilities, in its early years it used existing manufacturing silversmiths to fill orders, as in the case of this pitcher by William Gale and Son. With its entwined ivy and oak branches and rusticated handle it exemplifies the Rococo Revival style.
