ANTIQUE SILVER WATER JUGS

While the concept of serving water at the table is today very popular, it was not so common in Britain prior to the 20th Century, and was instead a European idea, with wine and beer being preferred on the table in the UK. As such, finding Victorian and Georgian British examples is hard, although they do exist, and can be distinguished from other jugs by the position and shape of the spout or the material of the handle.
