Literature: Milk and cream were not commonly taken in tea and coffee until the early eighteenth century. The earliest form of milk jug was introduced during the Queen Anne period and was shaped like a coffee pot with a hinged lid. By the 1720’s there were smaller cream jugs without lids.


This charming little jug is in very good condition. With a full set of clear English silver hallmarks marks underneath. Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
