Description


This exceptional vintage Elizabeth II sterling silver mounted blown glass claret jug has been modelled in the form of a seated bird.


This impressive vintage claret jug is fitted with an impressive hallmarked English sterling silver mount and shaped spout in the form of a beak.


The mount incorporates a hallmarked hinged cover in the form of the upper portion of the bird's head.


The cover retains the original bead eyes.


The vintage shaped glass body is embellished with simplified tiered feather designs and incorporates a draw hole to ease the liquids release through the tilting, pouring action.


This vintage silver and glass claret jug was crafted by the renowned London silversmiths Asprey & Co Ltd.

Condition


This vintage silver and glass claret jug is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The glass body and bead eyes are in perfect condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the mount and part hallmarks to the interior of the cover are all very clear; the first portion of the maker's mark has wear but remains legible.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine example of vintage glassware.
