This exceptional composite horn and sterling silver set consists of a claret jug and six beakers.

The impressive claret jug and beakers have cylindrical tapering forms; the beakers are crafted from natural horn therefore bear subtly differing shapes and sizes.

The cylindrical neck of the claret jug is fitted with a fine and impressive plain sterling silver hallmarked mount with a hallmarked hinged cover.

The cover is surmounted with an impressive pierced decorated interlacing scrolling thumbpiece.

This antique lidded jug is fitted with a plain angular handle.

The natural horn body is ornamented with an applied hallmarked sterling silver shield shaped vacant cartouche.

The underside of the jug is fitted with the original circular glass base.

This versatile Victorian jug could be functionally used for wine, cordial or water.

The vintage horn beakers are fitted with the original hallmarked sterling silver borders to the rims.

Each piece was assayed in London in different periods; the claret jug was crafted by Henry Titterton Brockwell of Brockwell & Son in 1881 and the beakers feature the hallmarks of Christopher Nigel Lawrence, 1980.
