Description


This exceptional antique Italian sterling silver water jug has an oval panelled, flared form onto a circular domed foot.


The surface of this antique jug is plain and unembellished, with a matte, subtly planished finish in keeping with the patination* of a piece from this period.


This impressive piece is fitted with an exceptional cast sterling silver scrolling handle, accented with a leaf design emanating from the thumbpiece; this leaf ornamentation comprises the upper terminal.


The circular foot is encircled with a band of embossed bead decoration.


This impressive antique silver jug has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as sterling standard silver (925/1000).


* Patination or Patina is a subtle colouration or tarnish which forms on the surface of some metals, produced by oxidation or other chemical processes. A good patina proffers an aesthetically pleasing look.
