We received a mail from Daphne Brown in Hermanus:
“I inherited these two beautiful jugs from my father many years ago and I believe they belonged to his grandmother. They have the word ‘England’ stamped underneath, plus a 4-digit number. They stand approximately 120 cm high. I don’t believe they are terribly valuable but would love to know the age and origins of these specimens, and what the value of them would be today.”
