This exceptional antique German sterling silver cream jug has been realistically modelled in the form of an 18th century Frenchman's head.

The embossed body of the jug is embellished with chased decoration replicating the fine details of the gentleman's hair and facial features.

The flared upper portion of the jug is embellished with a simple paralleling border, and the shape pertains to a continental/cocked hat.

This fine Hanau silver cream jug is fitted with a C shaped handle modelled in the form of the male's tied braid.

This antique cream jug retains the original gilded interior which has wear in keeping with age.

Maker's mark: Pseudo KKK (Karl Kurz*)
