Benham & Froud Lidded Brass Jug

Item Description

This should probably be listed in our Metalware category but is so Arts & Crafts in style that here it is.

Made by the London metalworkers Benham and Froud, this triangular shaped jug depicts, on two of its three sides a small sailing boat on choppy seas with rain in the distance and seagulls following behind. 

The seascape is continued on the back which also houses a well made rope pattern handle.

On top of the lid is a design incorporating an anchor and a traditional life buoy.

Marked beneath with the famous company mark, commemorating them having made the replacement orb and cross for St. Paul’s Cathedral in 1821. Benham and Froud were in production until 1906, when the company was reformed as Herbert Benham & Co.

This little jug, measuring 20cm high to the top of the decorative finial, would have been made around 1895.
