WONDERFUL GEORGIAN OLD SHEFFIELD PLATE MELON FORM CREAM JUG ~GILT & COPPER LINED

HI , AND WELCOME TO THIS sale FOR A WONDERFUL GEORGIAN OLD SHEFFIELD PLATE CREAM JUG.

THIS SUPERB PIECE IS IN GREAT CONDITION, DESPITE BEING AROUND 180 - 200 YEARS OLD.

IT IS A FINE PIECE OF OLD SHEFFIELD ' FUSED ' PLATE, WITH A BEAUTIFUL, GILT & COPPER LINED INTERIOR.

OF WHAT IS KNOWN AS A ' MELON ' FORM, WITH BULBOUS SIDES & DEEP LINES FROM TOP TO BOTTOM. A MOST LOVELY SHAPE.

THIS FINE JUG IS DECORATED WITH A LOVELY 'RIBBED' BAND JUST BELOW THE TOP RIM, AND HAS A VERY FINE SCROLL HANDLE, WITH ACANTHUS LEAF 'THUMB REST'.

TO THE BASE IS A FITTED 'CROWN' OR CIRCULAR BAND WHICH THE 4 X FEET ARE ATTACHED.

THE BAND IS DECORATED WITH FLOWING SCROLL PATTERNS, AND EACH FOOT FEATURES A FINE, CONVEX SHELL.

THE UPPER LIP ON THE INSIDE FEATURES A RICH, DEEP NATURAL COPPER, AS USED BY THE OLD SHEFFIELD PLATERS. WHETHER THIS WAS MADE THIS WAY, AS SOME PIECES WERE, OR WHETHER THE SILVER HAS COME OFF THIS PART ? EITHER WAY IT LOOKS WONDERFUL.

THE LOWER PART OF THE INSIDE IS 'MERCURY GILDED' OR GOLD WASHED / GILT. ALTHOUGH SLIGHTLY WORN FROM ITS MANY YEARS SERVICE, THE GOLD STILL SHINES BEAUTIFULLY & THIS IS A WONDERFUL, GEORGIAN PIECE.

CONDITION :

BEING AROUND 200 YEARS OLD IT DOES SHOW SOME SIGNS OF WEAR / USE.

THERE IS SOME WEAR TO THE OUTSIDE WITH THE COPPER GENTLY 'BLEEDING' THROUGH IN PLACES.

AND INSIDE THE GILDING HAS WORN OF A LITTLE.

HOWEVER , THERE IS NO DAMAGE OR REPAIRS.

THIS IS STILL A WONDERFUL PIECE , AND AS I HOPE YOU WILL SEE IT IS SUPERB ITEM, FROM A PROMINENT PERIOD IN HISTORY.
