Sterling Silver Jugs & Pitchers

Whether serving lemonade at a picnic or Tom Collins at a cocktail party, sterling jugs and pitchers add a dash of refinement to any occasion. They range in size from diminutive creamer jugs to more substantial pitchers able to hold enough ice water or beer to serve a large table.

The most valuable and sought-after examples of sterling jugs and pitchers hail from colonial America and 18th-century England. Paul Revere sterling jugs and pitchers executed in both Federalist and neoclassical styles rank among the most coveted kinds by collectors. During the 19th century, Tiffany & Co. produced an array of sterling jugs with wide mouths and floral patterns inspired by Persian decorative arts.

Like many sterling objects, jugs and pitchers become more alluring with age as their luster softens into an entrancing patina. Since sterling is composed of 92.5% percent pure silver, they will keep their beauty for generations to come and are appropriate for family heirlooms.
