Similar cream-jugs are in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and The Royal Ontario Museum. The attribution to Nicholas Sprimont traditionally applied to these cream jugs, and the related sauceboats, is based on the sauceboat stands, the form of which wqas also produced by Sprimonts Chelsea porcelain factory. Moreover a set of six sauceboats, with stands by Sprimont, are extant; a pair in the Alan and Simone Hartman Colletion, see C. Hartop, The Huguenot Legacy, Lonodn, no. 45, and a set of four in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. A pair of related saucboats were sold Christie's New York, 21 April 1998, lot 234, however the design was not so completely rococo in conception, with more traditional leaf-capped scroll handles. Paul Crespin also produced very similar sauceboats and C. Hartop, op. cit., no.45 suggests that Sprimont may have occasionally subcontracted work to Crespin.
The form of the cream-jug and the related sauceboats follows French designs of the 1730, as discussed by Hartop, op. cit. particularly pieces from the now lost Royal Portugese Service commissioned from Germain.
