Vintage Sterling Silver Cream Jug. This gorgeous and unusual jug (140ml capacity) is made from high gauge sterling silver. It has a scrolled handled with beaded decoration and a flared spout. The body consist of 8 panels and each is decorated with a cherubic scene. It stands on a matching panelled foot.Just below the rim, it is hallmarked for London 1903 with the sponsors mark of Alfred Lewis. It is also stamped with the letter F which the UK assayers used to denote that it was an imported piece. To the base, it is stamped with another set of original marks. These are Dutch marks with the Lion Passant alongside the number 1 for sterling silver. There also appear to be the assayers mark and the makers marks but I havent been able to identify them. This jug is in lovely condition with no dents that I can find and the decorative detail is nice and clear although there is some light surface wear caused through polishing over the years. The jug stands level without a wobble and Ive tested it and can verify that it is watertight.
Please be aware that, after 117 years, there will be some light surface abrasions and marks caused through use. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN PAGE TO SEE MORE IMAGES Approximate Measurements.
