A very rare "Adam" Urn Milk Jug made in London in 1775 by John Carter II

The Jug is modelled in the rare high "Adam" style and stands on a square pedestal foot decorated with beading. The unusual urn shaped main body is decorated with two further beaded bands, as is the rim. This piece has a most unusual, slender, bi-furcated beaded handle. The Jug is in excellent condition and is very well marked on the foot. The quality and weight of this piece is exceptional and it is of a design rarely seen in the milk jug size.

Height: 7 inches, 17.5cm.
Diameter at the widest section of the main body: 3.25 inches, 8.13cm.
Weight: 9oz.
