This Coote wine jug is beautifully crafted and looks very convivial and jolly. It epitomises the love of novelty objects for the dining table in the late Victorian era and would make an amusing alternative to the more traditional decanters. In spite of its compact shape, the jug's capacity is 85 cl so that it will easily accomodate a full bottle of wine but it might be equally amusing for brandy or port at the end of the meal. The pristine state of this wine jug and its form would make it a charming addition to any table.
