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.
The little silver jug is in good condition. Stamped with a full set of English silver hallmarks marks underneath. The foot is slightly “not round” however it stands firmly. 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.
