The Jug stands on a cast and applied stepped circular foot which is decorated with reeding. The baluster shaped main body rises to a slender neck and the rim is decorated with an applied reeded band. This example has a cast and applied "sparrow beak" pouring spout, with pendant drop below and a beautiful plain scroll handle. The Jug is in excellent condition, has a fine colour and is of a very good guage of silver. The Jug is very well marked in the foot and displays original interior hammer marks, from when it was originally raised. Shaw and Priest were very fine silversmiths, who made very fine Beer Jugs in their workshops. Although these pieces are termed Beer Jugs, they were almost certainly used for other cold liquids such as Water or Wine. The front of the main body is engraved with a contemporary Armorial, surrounded by a beautiful foliate scroll and strap work cartouche. The Arms are those of the Moore family. The Jug is of a very good weight and colour, one of the finest we have offered over the years.

Height: 9 inches, 22.5 cm.
Length, spout to handle: 7.5 inches, 18.75cm.
Weight: 36oz.
