Unusual Copper Jug*
Striking looking copper jug with a very unusual patination to the main body. We’ve certainly not come across anything similar.
The large and curvaceous handle is both soldered and riveted to the jug, and the same plain polished finish is used on the applied pattern which extends from top to bottom and across the front just below the pourer.
It is marked on the underside with the initials SF which we are unable to find any reference to. If anyone can help with the maker’s identification we’d be glad to hear from you.
We estimate the date of origin at around 1920 or so but cannot be too sure.
In clean condition and still watertight, with a height of approximately 24 cm.
