A 7.25" (18.5cm) Doulton Lambeth Siliconware silver rimmed jug made to resemble copper.
The Doulton Lambeth Siliconware jug was made in approximately 1893, when the silver rim was hallmarked in London. The manufacture of simulated copper goods started in 1887 an carried on till 1914. A wide variety of products were made in simulated copper in that period, not just jugs bowls and vases. This one has the impressed monogram of Mary Goode, and the series number 9503. Apart from the rim, every item including mock rivet heads, is made of fired clay.
The jug is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, crazing, restoration, or even scratches. The silver rim has a very shallow depression just above the handle.
