Cream jugOn display
Contact us about this object
This jug is a modest example of the genre of mid-eighteenth century cast rococo cream jugs, some of which were of extremely elaborate design and most likely intended for the dessert service rather than the tea service. For reasons unclear, many of these jugs are only marked with a maker's mark or not at all.
