Hollow ware

Unusually for the English language, sort of explains what it is, normally hollow ware is made from a sheet of solid silver welded into a hollow item such as a cylinder to make a jug or tea pot with a foot and handle added.

Generally hollow ware portents to tea pot and similar items that would hold a liquid, and tend normally to be of a size and quality, as skills progressed with stamping sheet metal more and more intricate designs could be produced and using less and less silver.
