The cylindrical neck of the jug is fitted with an impressive sterling silver gilt, hallmarked mount embellished with impressive chased floral and foliate decoration on a matte background, incorporating a scroll bordered vacant cartouche to one side.

The underside of the cast silver gilt spout features further floral and leaf designs.

The lower portion of the mount is encircled with a stylised scrolling fluted shaped border, in junction with the glass body.

The mount retains the original hinged, hallmarked cover encompassed with further chased floral decoration, in addition to fluted ornamentation to the domed portion, surmounted with a baluster shaped finial.

This antique claret jug is fitted with an impressive cast C shaped handle with a incurved thumbpiece and a large leaf design to the handpiece.

The cast terminal of the handle is further ornamented with floral ornamentation and conjoins to a hinged brace and supporting girdle to the underside of the glass body.

The exceptional blown glass body of the jug is embellished with subtle scrolling leaf ornamentation.

The base of the jug is ornamented with a hallmarked mount with an incurved shaped rim in junction with the glass foot; the silver overlay to the foot indicates the exceptional quality of the piece.
