This magnificent 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 scrolling fruiting vine ornamentation incorporating a figural mask to either side, all on a matte background.

The hallmarked hinged domed cover is encircled with further fruit and undulating vine decoration accented with an applied gadroon decorated border to the rim.

The cover is surmounted with an impressive cast sterling silver finial modelled in the form of a lion rampant holding a vacant shield shaped cartouche.

This Victorian claret jug has a sterling silver scrolling handle accented with bright cut engraved fruit and foliate ornamentation to the handpiece and upper plateau.

This lower mount is encircled with a band of applied bead decoration; this banded mount supports the lower scrolling terminal of the handle.

The upper plateau to the spout of this impressive silver and glass claret jug is embellished with bright cut engraved leaf and vine ornamentation, in addition to a cast bearded figural mask to the nadir.

The bulbous glass body is embellished with exceptional acid etched foliate decoration, accented with a star cut motif to the underside.

This magnificent Elkington & Co claret jug is the finest example of its type you could hope to acquire.
