Antique Cow Creamers

Many of you will know the significance of a certain Cow Creamer which Bertie Wooster disparagingly labelled a modern Dutch replica. Below is the wording for what is now an antique Dutch Cow Creamer recently offered for sale on eBay:

"This is a very rare, superb quality hallmarked Dutch silver cow creamer. According to my local auctioneer it was made around the 1860s. The cow is naturalistically modeled with crumpled horns and a look of bewilderment on her face and the swishing tail is the handle. The cream pours from the cow's mouth. There is a fly perched on the cover. The hallmarks are also on the cover. The detail is truly amazing. I have seen a few cow creamers over the years and this is the best by far, sheer quality. The cow even has udders. The creamer measures 5.5 inches in length from the tail to the nose and stands 3. 5 inches tall. Condition is perfect with dents, splits or old repairs at all. There are no monograms."
