Coin silver Classical form water pitcher, marked “G. Forbes” for Garret Forbes, a member of the Forbes family of silversmiths.  Ralph and Terry Kovel in their book American Silver Marks show that Forbes was born in 1785 and was active in New York in the year 1808.  According to Rootsweb on Ancestry.com, Garret Forbes worked from 1805 to 1839 in New York City and died in 1851.  This pitcher is from that period.  

Height is 9 inches and the length from tip of the spout to the back of the handle is 8½ inches.  Weight is 21.863t oz.  The script monogram is “JGL” on one side and “GLM” on the other.  

There are several small dents in the body of the pitcher but can only be seen on close inspection.
