A Georgian Irish Silver Cream Jug in the Neoclassical Style

 

This beautiful jug, a fine example Neoclassical silver, was made by William Doyle in Dublin 1800.

Bright cut ( decorative engraving with a series of short sharp strokes) skillfully  provides the light and shade effect. This technique became popular in the late eighteenth century. Bright cut and elegant shape of the cup is characteristic mid Georgian style.

 

Weighing 151g and measuring 14cm (5 inches) in height approximately, this is of very good quality.
