A Victorian Silver Claret JugSOLD

This Victorian Silver Claret Jug was made in London in 1897. The mounts are silver, while the body is finely cut lead crystal. Both the silver mounts and crystal body are in excellent condition. This beautiful silver claret jug would be just as fitting for water or any other beverage, but traditionally they were for wine. 

The finely cut lead crystal looks especially wonderful when filled with red wine and in candle light: the facets of the crystal pick up the light, and the colour suits the glass very well. 
The silver top is wonderfully chased with hand rendered decoration. It is difficult to find a beautiful jug of this quality in such fine condition.

An excellent example of a Victorian silver and cut crystal claret jug. 

Type: Jugs and Claret Jugs
