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

The wooden presentation case has slight wear to one corner of the base, as to be expected in keeping with age; but this does not affect the integrity of the box.

The chased decoration is all very sharp.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this example of antique Victorian silverware.
