Beautiful copper tin lined hinged lidded jug. The shape is fabulous and it pours very well, great balance.
The handle of this quality pitcher is solid and riveted securely to the body and it has the rather elegantly protruding lip characteristic of Villedieu.
This is the traditional Normandie shape and was probably crafted in the historical quality artisinal centre for copper, Villedieu le Poëles, which is very close to Quintessentially French .
The jug has not been polished and retains its patina. It would polish to a shine if required.
there are a few smaller dents which I have tried to capture. This is to be expected of an item of this age and for many adds to the charm. The jug is just over 9" tall, including the handle.
