Antique Hm Silver Top & Cut Glass Pair Of Matching Whisky Tot Jugs Noggins 1925 For Sale
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
Both silver collars
carry the hallmarks of solid silver for Birmingham 1925. These are:
& 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.
