Serving Jug 

English, 1550-1600

A big, fat, heavy boy! Not for the faint-hearted or the weak-wristed. Made to hang, but stands perfectly well. Just look at those lovely file marks and the unfinished seam -- very provincial English. Probably made for a village inn and just right for your country home. Serving jugs were not meant to be set down -- the servants holding them were kept constantly on the go replenishing drinkers' tankards.

Portrait Panel 

English, c.1550

Rare to find a full-frontal portrait (not profile): rare to find one so 3-dimensional, a full 2-3/4 inches deep. You'll feel you've got a real Tudor hanging on your wall!

Lantern Candlestick 

English, c.1670

An exceptional piece with compressed spiral stem to allow maximum room for the candle inside the lantern. Turned and dished base and well formed bobeche. Take your time looking at this, and it'll grow on you. NB American tin lanterns had fitted candleholders, 17th-century English brass ones did not.

Sharpening Steel 

English, mid-18th c.

Quite a talking point: a steel for sharpening a large knife for carving a buttock of beef! How do we know it's for beef -- look at the cast decoration on the handle: That ain't no chicken. A rare, beautifully made item. Make a couple of flashy swipes with it as you prepare to carve the turkey next Thanksgiving.
