Sparrow-beak silver cream jugs are the most prevalent, affordable and popular of early 18th century silver creamers and this is a fine example.
It takes the standard form of a baluster-shaped body standing on a ring foot with a sparrow-beak pouring lip. This example was made by the wonderfully named Starling Wilford during the early George II period and has original "RT" engraved initials to the top of the handle. This small cream jug is in fine condition with no issues to report.
