ANTIQUE PAIR OF MATCHING SILVER TOP AND CUT GLASS WHISKY TOT JUGS NOGGINS HALLMARKED BIRMINGHAM 1925

A matching pair of solid silver top and cut glass Whisky Tot Noggin Jugs. Both jugs are of the same design and by the same maker and year – one is very slightly larger than the other and has a bigger handle – which is not unusual for the time that they were made, as they would have been crafted by hand. They are in brilliant condition for their age of almost 100 years old - hallmarked for Birmingham 1925. They have hinged silver lids on cut glass jugs. The base of each is cut into a star pattern.

Both silver collars carry the hallmarks of solid silver for Birmingham 1925. These are: S.B & S.Ld into an oblong chamfered rectangle for S Blanckensee & Sons Ltd of Birmingham; the Anchor for the Birmingham Assay Office; the lion passant for English silver; the letter “A” in a shield for the year 1925. The lids are matching and also have the lion passant and the letter “A” in a shield.

APPROXIMATE MEASUREMENTS AND Height (excluding finials on top) is 11cm. One weighs 140g and the other, very slightly larger one, 150g.

They are both in excellent condition for their age. There are no chips to the glass on either apart from a tiny one on the slightly smaller jug at the top where the neck meets the collar. Similarly, the silver on both is in great condition. Both have a few small spots of wear on the outer rims of the inside of the lid where it meets the collar, as is normal. And the slightly smaller one has some spots of pitting near the back of the collar. You can see this on the photo although they look more noticeable because it needs a clean.

If you have any questions, please ask.
