This magnificent antique Georgian sterling silver beer jug has a plain baluster form onto a circular spreading foot.
The body of this impressive jug is embellished with a bright cut engraved scrolling leaf bodered cartouche displaying a contemporary coat of arms depicting a cross raguly. This impressive example of antique silverware is fitted with a cast sterling silver S scroll handle ornamented with a scrolling leaf thumbpiece. The beak style spout of this sterling silver jug is embellished with a vase-shaped moulding with a drop shaped form to the nadir. The circular spreading foot is embellished with bands of tooled decoration.This exceptional beer jug is a large example and the finest of its type you could hope to acquire. Due to this unfortunate event we are unable to associate a maker to this jug and the Grimwades book confirms this maker as "unidentified". This large Georgian silver beer jug is a superior gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition. Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the base are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the superior gauge of silver. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this Georgian silverware.
