A 5" high genuine period Sheffield Plate helmet-style cream jug c1780-1800. Sheffield plate pre-dates electroplating and it consists of thin layers of silver laid on to copper sheets; the sandwich of metals is then formed into the desired object. This unsigned creamer is in good original condition with no dents, bends, corrosion, damage or repairs; it has the expected areas of copper blush from polishing over the last couple of centuries Re-plating these period pieces tends to devalue it from a Sheffield plate collection point of view. All items are thoroughly and conservatively graded and all condition issues are noted; all items are secondhand and may have slight signs of gentle use.
