Standing 2 7/8" tall to the rim, 3 3/16" to the top of the handle, and resting on a 1 1/2" diameter, tiered base, this solid silver cream pitcher or jug weighs a relatively weighty 3.15 T. oz.

It is fully hallmarked for maker Lionel Alfred Crichton, sterling, London, and year 1933 on the upper portion of the body, and reads "Crichton & Co Ltd" over "Made in England" on the underside. There is also what appears to be a faint lion imprinted on the edge of the base.

Consistent with the reputation of this firm, the piece is impeccably made.

Georgian in style, it is well-proportioned, having a bulbous body with a graceful spout and solid silver, cee scroll handle, and balances perfectly on its pedestal foot.

Never monogrammed or inscribed, it is in flawless condition. Without bends or dents, it sits evenly and has a brilliant, hand polished only, finish.
