Victorian English Copper Jug Pitcher Measuring Set of Five, C. 1860
This is an outstanding set of five English liquid measuring jugs or pitchers. This is a wonderful graduated set of copper jugs.
The sizes and volumes of the jugs are as follows
1. Largest---12 1/2 inches tall, 11 inches in diameter at the base, and 13 inches wide spout to handle (2 gallons) 2. Next to Largest: 10 1/2 inches tall, 9 15/16 inches in diameter at the base, and 10 1/2 inches wide spout to handle (1 gallon) 3. Middle Jug--8 3/4 inches tall, 8 1/2 inches wide in diameter at the base, and 9 inches wide spout to handle (1/2 gallon) 4.

Smallest: 6 inches tall, 5 1/8 inches in diameter at the base, and 6 inches wide spout to handle (1/2 quart)
Each of the jugs has a skirted base design. Although the set of jugs is not marked, we bought in England from one of trusted kitchenaria dealers. We set the date at mid-19th century.
The jugs are all in good shape. They do not leak---we tested them all to determine the volumes. There are user marks, and together this is a wonderful set of Victorian copper jugs. A wonderful set for display, or use.
