Dark amethyst cream jug - Be Canny with the Cream

Stock Number: 4887

This is what we believe to be a dark amethyst cream jug dating from the turn of the 18th/19th centuries, c1800, and sporting the legend "Be Canny With the Cream".  
The jug is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the foot consistent with some 200 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.  
The jug is of baluster form in the amethyst colourway and measures 7 cm (2.8 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl sits on a short conical foot which measures 5.2 cm (2.1 inches) in diameter.  The jug is 9.7 cm (3.9 inches) in height.  There is a slightly rubbed band of gilding below the rim and a small gilt flourish under the pouring rim.  The legend "Be Canny With the Cream" appears to the front body of the jug in gold enamel.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any evidence of restoration.    The gilding is rubbed throughout.  It weighs 166 g. (~ 6 oz.).
