Antique Italian Sterling Silver Jug - image 1 of 12

An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Italian sterling silver jug; part of our dining silverware collection

This exceptional antique Italian sterling silver water jug has an oval panelled, flared form onto a circular domed foot.

The surface of this antique jug is plain and unembellished, with a matte, subtly planished finish in keeping with the patination* of a piece from this period.

This impressive piece is fitted with an exceptional cast sterling silver scrolling handle, accented with a leaf design emanating from the thumbpiece; this leaf ornamentation comprises the upper terminal.

The circular foot is encircled with a band of embossed bead decoration.

This impressive antique silver jug has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as sterling standard silver
(925/1000).

* Patination or Patina is a subtle colouration or tarnish which forms on the surface of some metals, produced by oxidation or other chemical processes. A good patina proffers an aesthetically pleasing look.
