Silver water jug or coffee pot made by A E Jones Birmingham 1919

Silver water jug A E Jones Birmingham 1919

  • Lovely silver water jug made by A E Jones and hallmarked in Birmingham in 1919.

    In good condition commensurate with its age. The hallmarks are clear, the sponsors mark is a little rubbed but readable. It measures 20 cms high by 15 cms across from handle to spout and weighs 262 grams including handle.

    Albert Edward Jones was born in 1878 into a family of
    of craftsmen and he followed their lead in applying much care and attention to each piece.

    He worked as a guildsman at the Birmingham Guild of Handicraft which enabled him to work with many leading artists of the Arts and Crafts movement. The influence of them on his silver work is very evident in this jug.
