Been a while since I promised Trev I would post this so finally got around to it:
The year 1770 heralded the beginning of the neo-classical period in Ireland, overlapped by the Rococo for a while. Douglas Bennett shows two silver cream jugs of rather unusual shape by Carden Terry in his book Irish Georgian Silver (1972). One is a panelled jug with beaded rim, high looped reeded handle and octagonal beaded foot while the other is of an ogee pattern with beaded rim on a round central moulded foot. Although not Rococo designs, Kurt Ticher shows the same two cream jugs in his book Irish Silver in the Rococo Period (1972). It seems the authors collaborated or more likely, shared a common source, as their descriptions do differ. However, both date the cream jugs to circa 1780. If you have both books, the quality of the photographs is better in Ticher's book.
The cream jug pictured below is another silver cream jug of the same period by Carden Terry, probably a more classical design than the aforementioned jugs and dated circa 1775-80. It has a round central moulded foot and a distinctive high looped reeded handle with acanthus leaf decoration where it meets the body of the jug. The body and foot are plain silver, decorated with beading around the rims. The colour of the silver is exceptionally good and there are no repairs or any issues with it. Underneath the foot, Carden Terry stamped it twice with his CT mark and also his usual STERLING mark, and these are in very good condition. The initials LCD are inscribed on the jug. It weighs 7.75oz (Troy) and stands 18cm high (7.25in.).
Can anyone please point me in the direction of any other Carden Terry cream jugs of this period, i.e. circa 1775-1780? I know a major auction house sold one in New York in 2001, "the cream jug of baluster form on spreading circular foot with scroll handle and beaded rim. 8Â½in. (21.5cm.) long" - "marked Carden Terry, Cork, circa 1780", but the accompanying photo is no longer available. Any others?
