Unusual Silver Lidded Jug
Double acorn finials to handle on a heart shaped lid set with a coin of some description and a shield with the letter F, the handle decorated with animals and foliage.
Thought to be a vessel to hold alcoholic beverage for a person at the dinner table, would be one such jug per person very like the silver mounted glass whisky noggins produced in the UK.
In very nice condition and stands 170mm tall.
