The cylindrical neck of this Edwardian claret jug is fitted with an impressive sterling silver, hallmarked mount embellished with impressive chased fruiting vine ornamentation on a matte background, incorporating a scroll bordered shaped vacant cartouche to one side.
The upper portion of the mount is encircled with an impressive band of chased geometric decoration.
The scalloped lower rim of the mount is embellished with a simplified paralleling border.
The mount retains the original domed hinged, hallmarked cover encompassed with further geometric ornamentation identical to that of the mount.
This exceptional cover is surmounted by an impressive hallmarked sterling silver finial realistically modelled in the form of a trifurcating grape vine; this detachable finial secures to the interior with a screw fitment.
This antique claret jug is fitted with an impressive cast opposing scroll handle embellished with scrolling leaf ornamentation incorporated into the thumbpiece and handpiece.
The upper socket and lower terminal of the handle are ornamented with applied fruiting vine and grape cluster designs.
The underside of the exceptional, cast and applied spout is embellished with foliate and grape designs below a geometric border, all reflecting the design to the mount.
The rounded body of the jug is ornamented with cut glass star and hobnail style ornamentation with a star cut motif to the underside.
