This Silver Jug has been in my family for several generations. The piece bears the mark of sliversmith Boucheron. I believe it is a presentation piece. The inscription on the spout is written in French and bears the royal emblem of King Louis XVI. The pesentation dates 1743 given to Le Counte de Charollois. This piece was passed down to me from my grandfather, Jules H. Venon, who was a French merchant living in New York City and importing French and Swedish china to the US. That is about all that I know of the piece and would welcome any additional information anyone knows of the period.
