This is a very good Antique Solid Silver Victorian Water Jug. It is of a baluster shape with a spreading circular pedestal base. It has a part swirl reeded pattern to the base of the body and an embossed border around the top part just under the rim, which is also mirrored on the hinged circular domed lid, which has a flame shaped finial. Underneath the elongated lip where it runs down the top part of the body, there is an attractive embossed leaf pattern. It has a dark wooden question mark shaped handle. It is made from a good guage of silver and although the hallmarks are a bit rubbed on the body, they are clear on the lid.
Assay Office: LONDON
Makers Marks: WH SS Ld (William Hutton & Sons Ltd)
Dimensions: 8.5 inches tall, 8.5 inches wide from lip to handle, the actual body is 4.25 inches wide at its widest bulbous base point and it weighs 397g. It holds just under 1 pint (19 fl oz)
Condition: Overall it is in very good condition with just a couple of very very minor shallow dings and some light surface scratching, which is only to be expected on a metal item and is commensurate with age and use. It also has a very slight wobble, and although again this is very minor, felt I had to point it out, as I do try to list my items as accurately as possible
Remarks: This is a very good antique solid silver Victorian water jug, of a very elegant shape and a lovely useable jug
Antique and vintage silver by its very nature has been previously used. Silver is a comparatively soft metal and a combination of many years use invariably leaves its mark. I do endeavour to describe all items accurately but do not expect any antique to be in "as new condition".
