A stunning antique sterling silver bar measure by Blackinton & Co. The simple design and sleekness of this silver measure is what makes this piece so stunning. Heavier in weight, this piece has a solid feel to it. Truly a lovely vintage measure.

Hallmarks: "Sterling" and an "R" and "B" and Co" along with "1485" is embossed inside the smaller jigger

Maker/era: Blackington & Co, 1930s

A bit about this vintage maker: Founded in 1862 by Walter Ballou and Roswell Blackinton in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, and was owned and operated by members of the same two families for many years. The original trademark was used until c. 1900. Their products have consisted mostly of sterling silver and 14 karat gold novelites, flatware, holloware and dresserware, with a small amount of costume jewelry. Bought by Wells, Inc, Attleboro, Mass. , June 1967.

Condition: Good vintage condition overall but with noticeable signs of age. We like to be thorough when it comes to our vintage pieces, so here's a full summary:

1) There's general age and surface wear inline with a piece that's 90 years old
2) The sterling is in good condition overall but does show mild surface wear, "age spots" (that will likely not polish away) and tarnish
3) There are some micro shallow dings on both jigger ends -- see photos
4) The smeller jigger end isn't perfectly round (it's very subtle but we want to be thorough) -- see photo
5) The jigger's handle is "hollow" (see photo #8) -- which gives it a bit of a rustic feel
6) There's age and tarnish at the "base" of the jigger (that connects both jigger ends) -- see photo

In short, this piece is in good vintage condition overall but does show noticeable signs of age and wear. Truly a breath-taking bar measure.

Measurements: Approx. 4 3/4" in length (measured from the top of the wood handle to the jigger)
