About

Hallmarked in London in 1968 by William Comyns, this charming, sterling silver cow creamer, is full of character. The cow creamer measures 4"(10cm) tall, by 6"(15cm) from nose to tail, by 2.25"(6cm) deep, and weighs 5.4 troy ounces. Silver cow creamers first appeared in the UK during the 18th century, the Dutch immigrant and Silversmith Johan Schuppe is credited with being the first to manufacture them here. They were very popular throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, and had a resurgence in popularity in the 20th century due to an appearance on the TV adaptation of P. G. Wodehouse’s book ‘The Code of the Woosters’ starring Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie.
