Cut Glass and Sterling Silver Mounted Claret Jug - Antique Victorian (1878)


This fine antique Victorian English cut glass and sterling silver mounted claret jug has a tapering cylindrical bulbous form.

The cylindrical portion of the body is fitted with a fine shaped, pierced decorated sterling silver mount.

The upper portion of the silver mount is ornamented with bright cut engraved acanthus leaf and scroll decoration, the lower supporting girdle is plain and unembellished.

The hallmarked hinged domed cover is embellished with bright cut engraved scroll decoration and surmounted with a very impressive figural finial realistically modelled in the form of a Roman soldier wearing typical cuirass armour and holding a staff and a vacant shield shaped cartouche.

This Victorian claret jug has a shaped sterling silver handle ornamented with bright cut engraved flower and leaf decoration to the handpiece and scrolling terminals.

This fine claret jug has a cast sterling silver acanthus leaf decorated spout.

The lower bulbous portion of the glass body of this antique jug is embellished with diagonal cross double prairie style cut glass decoration.

The heavily cut glass base of this unusual jug is ornamented with a large star cut decoration to the underside.

Date: 1878


The mount of this antique cut glass claret jug is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

There is minor wear to the underside of the base, and surface blemishes to the glass and silver mount as to be expected.

The interior of the claret jug has been professionally cleaned.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the mount and part hallmarks struck to the interior of the cover are very clear.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Victorian silver and glassware.
