This claret jug is in excellent presentation condition in keeping with age; a couple of small dings to the top of the sterling silver mount, and few minor nibbles to the glass hobnails, do not detract from the overall quality of this piece.
Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Victorian silverware.
