The Jug stands on a cast and applied stepped circular foot which is decorated with reeding. The pear shaped body rises to a slender neck which is also decorated with an applied reeded rim. This example has a sparrow beak pouring spout, with pendant drop below, and a beautiful plain scroll handle. The front of the main body is very beautifully engraved with a contemporary Armorial, surrounded by a strap work, shell and foliate spray cartouche. The Jug is in excellent condition, has a very good colour and displays crisp marks in the foot. Thomas whipham I was a fine quality maker, however this is not surprising, as he was apprentice to the Royal silversmith, Thomas Farren.
