This wonderfully stylish and fine quality jug is in superb condition. This wonderful jug is in a stunning Georgian baluster reeded design - oval in shape with a reeded handle and engraved bands to the side. It is NOT engraved to either cartouche. The jug measures 4 3/4" tall by 2 1/2" deep andis 4 7/8" long from handle to lip.It is very substantial - it weighs138.9 grams -almost 4 1/2troy oz.
