Sparrow-Beak Jug

English, c.1745

Cast and seamed brass. Sparrow beaked cream jugs are most commonly found in silver, less commonly in porcelain and very rarely in a plebian material such as brass. But here one is, cast in two halves. It's got real character and it couldn't care less that is not posh like its relatives! Good condition with no repairs or restoration.

4-3/4" tall.
