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.

NOTE: The London Assay Office have missing records in the Smallworkers' Register (1739-1758) and Largeworkers' Register (1758-1773), and it can be determined that this maker's mark was registered within this time frame. Due to this unfortunate event we are unable to associate a maker to this jug and the Grimwades book confirms this maker as "unidentified".
