Product Description

A very attractive and unusual silver plated Spirit Kettle in the shape of a Guernsey Milk Jug.

The Kettle Jug has the traditional Channel Islands bulbous shape with a handle that has been covered in woven rattan reed. The kettle sits inside a wire frame that also holds the spirit burner. On the underside of the kettle are some indistinguishable maker’s marks, 2 and EPNS. Condition is very good, without any lifting of the silver plate.

This shape has been made famous by the copper cream jugs, typically made in the Channel Islands, particularly Guernsey. Although the design is based on French milk jugs that go back about a thousand years, the shape has survived only on Guernsey and Jersey.

Size: 21 x 18 x 27 cm (8 ¼ x 7 x 10 5/8 inches)
Weight: 776 g
