Hot milk jug, Pete Acquisto, IGMA Fellow
An "ebony" handled sterling silver hot milk jug by Pete Acquisto. The lid hinges open nicely. Original by Richard Bayley, London , England, circa 1720. It doesn't have its original box.
I have gently cleaned the jug with polish (not a chemical dip) and it has a nice light patina.
