Holiday Gifts of Remarkable Distinction

This year Jane Austen Today will point you to gifts of remarkable distinction, or one of a kind, or those with true antique value.
1781 silver creamer

Observe this beautiful Georgian era creamer.

5 7/8" high
18th Century, Hallmarked London, 1781

Detail of Hester Bateman Creamer

Hester Bateman's signature bright-cut engraving takes center stage in this magnificent Georgian period silver creamer. With the addition of her equally-distinct beaded edging emphasizing the inherent beauty of this antique piece, it is clear to see why Bateman is often regarded as the "Queen of the Silversmiths."

Purchase price: A cool $4,450
