Description


This exceptional antique Victorian glass and sterling silver claret jug has a circular rounded, globular form.


The elevated cylindrical neck is fitted with a fine and impressive plain sterling silver hallmarked mount with the original hallmarked hinged cover.


The anterior surface of the cover is embellished with a contemporary bright cut engraved crest displaying a dove with wings elevated hold in the beak a laurel branch, standing on a column.


The cover is surmounted with a simplified lobed silver thumbpiece.


This antique Victorian claret jug is fitted with a plain angular handle in the iconic Design style; the late 20th century style of this handle is ahead of its time.


The plain glass body of the jug is ornamented with a star cut base.


Date: 1899

Condition


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

There are a few minor surface blemishes to the glass body in keeping with age; this does not detract from the aesthetically pleasing appearance of the jug.

The silver mount has been professionally polished and the jug is in presentation condition.


Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the mount and part hallmarks to the cover are very clear in keeping with age and location.


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