Antique Silver Cream Jug
A fine example of a Georgian solid Silver milk or cream jug with a punched border around the rim and elegant curved handle, stood on a round footed base. The jug is stylish and good quality, weighing approximately 71g.
It is clearly hallmarked on the base for London, 1788. The maker appears to be GB, possibly George Burrows but hard to identify for certain.
