A MONUMENTAL LEATHER 'BLACK JACK',

Provenance The Hoare Family. According to family tradition this jug was made from the hide of Crowell's war horse. The date '1653' on the rim of the jug may suggest that it commemorates the year Cromwell became Lord Protector. It has also been suggested, however, that the silver metal mounts may represent a later antiquarian improvement
Condition The jug has a wonderful aged surface with wear and damage consistent with age. The silver mounts are possibly later, perhaps an 18th century antiquarian addition

Estimate: £4,000 - £6,000
Hammer price: £7,400
