This exceptional antique Victorian glass and sterling silver mounted claret jug has a tapering cylindrical bulbous form.

The cylindrical portion of the glass body is fitted with the original hallmarked sterling silver mount embellished with chased fruit and leaf ornamentation incorporating a scroll bordered applied grotesque mask to either side.
