Silver lemonade jugs have been made in England since around the middle of the Victorian period, seemingly just after R. White’s Lemonade started being sold in 1845, although it seems unlikely that there is a connection. A lemonade jug should be of large capacity, and have a removable ice container to keep whatever drink is being served cold (they work well for cocktails as well as lemonade). Victorian and Edwardian examples are most sought after.
