Description


This exceptional antique German sterling silver cream jug has been realistically modelled in the form of a Character/Toby Jug*.


The heavy-set figure is embellished with chased decoration realistically modelled in the form of 18th century attire, incorporating a waistcoat and long outer-coat.


This antique Toby Jug is further ornamented with a smoking pipe and drinking vessel in either hand.


The shape of the flared upper portion of the jug pertains to a tricorn hat and incorporates a pouring spout to the anterior edge.


This fine novelty silver cream jug is fitted with an opposing scrolling leaf decorated handle.


The character surmounts a domed base encircled with a trellis of lozenge designs, replicating the details of tiles.


This antique Toby Jug retains the original gilded interior.


The hallmarks struck to the underside of this impressive jug include:

Maker's mark: Pseudo KKK (Karl Kurz)

Importer's mark: SBL (Samuel Boyce (or Boaz) Landeck)

Import mark: Acorn (Chester, England)

Import date mark: D (1904)

Silver quality/purity mark: .925 (sterling standard, 925/1000)

Additional marks: Hanau hallmarks


* A Toby Jug, also known as a Fillpot/Philpot are typically pottery jugs modelled in the form of a recognizeable person, such as a King of England. A figure only depicted from the shoulders upwards or later pieces are often called 'Character Jugs'.


Date: 1904
