Birmingham Silver Jug circa 1915

This is an antique silver jug circa 1915. I found it when I went to Peterborough Festival of Antiques last week. It was a huge antiques festival with large outdoor stalls and large indoor stalls too. Unfortunately my phone battery was gone off, so I did not manage to take a single picture of the antiques fair. Well, anyway, this piece is a thing to enjoy from the fair.

It has three very ornate legs.

It has the hallmark of Birmingham 1915 with the letter ‘q’. The marker mark is either MS*B or HS*B, but I could not find who the marker is.

I am very much like the outer design of the jug. It has amazing pattern.

The handle is so cute too. It has a unique curve.

I wonder what kind of sauce that they use this jug for? Barbecue sauce? Gravy sauce?
