A late 18th century Georgian silver cream jug, hallmarked London 1795. The jug has a helmet shaped bowl with waisted circular foot over a square plinth base. Narrow elongated loop handle with reeded detail. Spout and rim decorated with miniature beading. Engraved band of ribbon decoration to top of bowl and monogrammed shield cartouche to front. The jug is hallmarked for London, 1795 with GG for silversmith George Gray which has been over-struck onto marks for Peter and Ann Bateman. The jug is 13.5 cm height to top of handle.
This jug is in very condition commensurate with age. Exceptionally minor signs of use to the bowl. Minor 'dints' to the square plinth. Please see images as these form an important part of the description.
