Early Amercan helmet cream jug, Abraham DuBois

Early Amercan helmet cream jug, Abraham DuBois

Philadelphia circa 1795, with applied beaded border, square base, sunken center and handle offset to the corners, height 6 3/4 to top of spout; base 2 1/2 inches, weight 5.70 Troy ounces, monogrammed I * A on foot.

There is some rather sloppy soldering on the beaded border beneath the spout (I do not believe this to be a repair) which we show in agonizing detail, see image four, and the overall color indicates that there may have been either a removal or some machine polishing at one point in time. However, on the whole, this piece presents well, and it is reasonably priced for an early American cream jug.
