Product Description

A very important coin silver covered pitcher of Charleston, SC provenance.
This was a successful and prolific partnership (1846-50), between William Gale and Nathaniel Hayden.
Their shop was at 116 Fulton Street.
Although Gale was from New York, Hayden lived and trained as a silversmith in Charleston.
After completing his apprenticeship with John Eyland of Charleston, Hayden joined him in a partnership (1832-35).
He continued to practise on his own till 1838 when he joined William Gregg in another partnership till 1843.
It bears an inscription, which I think adds to its importance:
"From H W Oppenheim of Charleston, So. Ca as a token of esteem to Dr. William Detmold, New York ".
Oppenheim(er) was a member of the famous banking family while Dr Detmold was a very famous New York orthopaedic surgeon who emigrated from Germany.
Evidently, Dr Detmold introduced orthopaedic surgery to the US.
In very good condition.
Dimensions: Height 11". Length 10".
Weight: 34 Troy oz.
