George I Covered Milk Jug
An extremely rare little antique silver milk jug with a hinged lid. Britannia standard silver. This is one of the earliest forms of milk jug and the style is very much like a contemporary coffee pot. Simple plain design and very pretty wooden handle. Weight 191 grams, 6.1 troy ounces. Height 14 cms. Spread 10 cms. Diameter of base 5 cms. London 1718. Maker Richard Bayley.
Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
Milk wasn’t commonly taken in tea and coffee until the early eighteenth century and there are no milk jugs dating to before the Queen Anne period. Cream jugs without lids date from the 1720s onwards.
