Sterling Holloware: Ewers

Antique Sterling Silver Ewers

A ewer is a type of large jug with a deep, tall bowl sitting on a stemmed base and a single vertical scroll handle. The handle is either harp-shaped or figural and extends above the rim of the mouth. The bowl is typically cylindrical or helmet-shaped, but you can also find ewers with oval-shaped bowls. It even evolved from holding water to wash guests’ hands to being used to serve wine. Nelson & Nelson’s stunning collection of antique sterling silver pitchers will make any collector swoon. Feel free to stop by our New York City store, or browse our selection of antique sterling silver ewers through our website today.
