Helmet form cream jug, c.1790

This Chinese export porcelain helmet form jug with cobalt blue decoration was made in the style of an 18th century silver creamer.

Jug measures 4-2/4″ high and has a monochromatic floral design enameled on the front.

The replaced handle was recycled from a silver spoon by a jeweler, most likely in the early 1800’s.

The remains of early hallmarks can be seen on the inside of the handle.

This “perfect” example shown below has its original handle¬†intact.
