Description


This exceptional antique Georgian sterling silver beer jug has a plain baluster form onto a circular spreading foot.


The body of this impressive antique silver jug is embellished with an impressive engraved scrolling leaf bodered coat of arms depicting on a fess three five-pinted stars between three griffens' heads erased.


This impressive example of Georgian silverware is fitted with a cast sterling silver S scroll handle ornamented with an impressive scrolling leaf thumbpiece and bifurcating lower scrolling terminal.


The cast beak style spout of the jug is embellished with a vase-shaped moulding to the nadir.


The circular spreading foot is embellished with bands of tooled decoration.


NOTE: The London Assay Office have missing records in the Smallworkers' Register (1739-1758) and Largeworkers' Register (1758-1773), and it can be determined that this maker's mark was registered within this timeframe. However John King became free from his apprenticeship August 1757, and it can be determined there is a high probability that this maker's mark associates to him.


Date: 1769

Condition


This 18th century jug is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

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