This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver christening mug has been realistically modelled in the form of a barrel.

The mug is fitted with a large plain faceted opposing scroll handle accented with an incurved thumbpiece.

This exceptional mug retains the original gilded interior.

The underside of the mug bears the retailer's mark 'Wordlet & Co, Liverpool'.
