Antique Victorian* Mappin & Webb Silver* Creamer Milk Jug:
I've way too much "stuff" in too small a place, so many items are going on for sale to make space with a "Spring Clean". I'm also a bit of a recycling freak and like to see things get a 2nd (sometimes 3rd+) home and re-used or re-purposed.This listing is for some:1x Antique Victorian* Mappin & Webb Silver* Creamer Milk Jug
*The date for this is based on research that shows the - Mappin & Webb - stamp without any other information is In Giorgio's silvercollection.it, the chronology of M&W Marks goes -
Mappin & Co 1859-1863
Mappin & Webb 1863-1898 (purchased Stephen Smith & Son, 1886)
Mappin & Webb Ltd 1898-1906 (absorbed Mappin Brothers 1902/1903)
Mappin & Webb (1908) Ltd - 1908-1913
Mappin & Webb Ltd 1913-present
Mappin & Webb (without Ltd.) was only used in the period of 1863 to 1898. This dates the item to the second half of the 19th century.* The Silver has numerous Marks, and some items in the set look like some have been polished away, but as no visible Hallmarks, I have to say these must be Plate, although they look and feel more like solid.THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL ITEM - as are the other matching Mappin & Webb items. The photo's show all the item without a recent polish as the "experts" are always saying not to clean items too regularly. <- That AND the fact I haven't got any Silver Polish. ;)I have included a couple of photo's that shows several items, including a tray - these are all on at present, but this listing is only for the stated tray - the mentioned image is there for illustration purposes only.This would make a lovely gift to someone with the festive season soon upon us.Please look carefully at all the photo's provided and do all your own research as the item is sold as seen and due to price returns aren't accepted.I pack well and usually send items like this via Hermes and get them into the system within a few days. Thank you for looking and why not check out my other offerings. You may find something else you'd like, or have been looking for.
