The Jug is plain in design with a slightly everted rim and side pouring spout. This piece has a wicker covered side handle, with plain silver mouldings where it is attached to the main body. The front of the main body is engraved with a set of script initials with a Coronet above. The Jug is very well marked on the base. To find a shaving Jug made in silver is particularly unusual, as most were made in porcelain or pottery.

This rare and highly important maker had workshops in Jermyn Street, St James's, when this piece was made. Little is known about his early life, however it is thought that his most important work is the great Wine Cooler in The Hermitage.

Height: 4 inches, 10cm.
