Description


This exceptional sterling silver water jug has a baluster shaped form onto a circular spreading foot.


The waisted cylindrical neck of this silver jug is embellished with impressive stylised leaf motifs, segmented with opposing scroll designs.


The lower swept portion of the neck is encompassed with the contemporary engraved inscription 'To Charles Edward Rawlins, junior honorary secretary to the Liverpool Anti Monopoly Association anno domini MDCCCXLII to MDCCCXLVII'; these Roman numerals convert to the Latin dates 1842 and 1847.


The bulbous portion of the body is embellished with exceptional engraved scene depicting a female figure draped in flowing fabric being carried by a male character; this male could be associated to Hermes, the Greek Olympian deity and the herald of the gods.


The other side of this exceptional jug is further embellished with a main, central female being adorned and clothed by three semiclad figures.


The body of this exceptional example of antique silverware is further ornamented with two large scrolling palmette style designs, all on a matte background.


The lower portion of the jug is encompassed with an interlacing scalloped style pendant bud design.


The neck is embellished to the upper portion with impressive gadroon decoration to the shaped rim.


The jug is fitted with an exceptional hinged hallmarked cover, surmounted with an impressive cast leaf decorated thumbpiece, accented with further scrolling decoration to the domed portion.


This antique silver jug is fitted with an impressive elevated loop style handle ornamented with an exceptional cast and applied figural mark design to the lower terminal.


This exceptional jug was crafted by the renowned London silversmiths Edward, John & William Barnard.


Date: 1847

Condition
