The Jug is of circular compressed form with an applied beaded rim. The neck is cast and decorated with an anthemion and bluebell drop band. The mid section displays a beautiful applied girdle of ornate scrolling wave motifs containing flower heads and blue bells. The hinged cover terminates in a plain stylised artichoke finial and the Jug has a fruit wood scroll handle.



The circular lampstand is cast and has three beautiful winged paw legs, below a frieze of anthemion motifs. The plain burner is held in place by a beaded support. This piece is of the finest quality and is very well marked on the jug, stand and burner. This type of Jug is very rare, especially with this unusual decoration.



Richard Sibley I was an exceptional maker. Grimwade states that his work whether alone, or in partnership, is of a high standard of design and execution in the Regency taste.
