SOLD - Sterling Silver Wine/Water Jug - Antique George III

Description


This impressive George III sterling silver wine/water jug has plain baluster form onto a pedestal foot.


The plain body of this fine Georgian silver jug is embellished with a contemporary bright cut engraved coat of arms displaying a shield party per pale surmounted with the crest depicting a demi lion rampant above.


The coat of arms is encompassed with a bright cut engraved suspended swag design to the upper portion and a ribbon bow tied reed motif to the lower.


This impressive wine jug is fitted with a hinged hallmarked domed cover with an applied bead decorated border to the rim.


The cover is surmounted by a sterling silver urn style finial encircled with further bead ornamentation.


The water jug retains the original C scroll woven bamboo decorated handle.


This impressive George III wine jug has a plain spout.


The foot of this Georgian silver jug is ornamented with a band of applied bead decoration.


Date: 1788

Condition


This antique water jug is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the base and part hallmarks to the interior of the cover are all very clear; the makers mark has been over struck making identification difficult, this was common practice when a maker sold a piece of silverware which was not made by an alternative silversmith.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine example of Georgian silverware.

Length from back of handle to tip of lip 17.5cm/6.8"

Diameter of body 14cm/5.5"

Diameter of rim 10.4cm/4.1"
