This antique wine jug is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The chased and cast decoration is all very sharp

There is a slight tear to the lower portion of the originial box's satin interior; the piece can be considered to be in presentation condition in keeping with age.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the neck are very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.

Reflections in photographs may not give a true representation of this exceptional 19th century jug in sterling silver.
