This exceptional antique Victorian English sterling silver Cellini style claret jug has a ewer shaped form onto a circular pedestal foot.

The swept neck of the claret jug is embellished with exceptional chased foliate decoration accented scrolling strapwork and incorporating chased decorated figural mask to the posterior surface, all on a matte background; there is an exceptional and large secondary cast mask to the underside of the pouring lip.

The neck terminates with a plain, knopped waisted portion to a broad band of six chased alternating grotesque figural medallions accented with scrolling leaf decoration and segmented with plain convex fluted designs; the plain portion features the contemporary bright cut engraved inscription 23rd Nov 1880.

The decoration to the body incorporates grazing livestock, in addition to an oval cartouche to the front displaying the contemporary bright cut engraved crest of a boar's head above the motto 'Set On'*.

The lower portion of the body is further embellished with a segmented band incorporating chased decorated busts accented with foliate designs.

This impressive example of Victorian silverware is fitted with a domed hinged hallmarked cover, embellished with large scrolling leaf designs on a matte background and surmounted with an exceptional cast sterling silver finial.
