Antique Aesthetic Design Silver Plate & Etched Glass Claret Jug Decanter   Antique Aesthetic Design Silver Plate & Etched Glass Claret Jug Decanter
A Victorian period antique claret jug. It is in the Aesthetic style with Oriental inspired imagery to both the body of the decanter and the mount. It dates around 1870 and is of good quality manufacture. The body is nicely etched with various patterns along with natural features such as a stork, a butterfly and plants. The handle has been formed in the shape of bamboo and the lid is knopped by an Oriental style seated figure.

The glass used is of good quality and the etching is of a standard you would usually find on a solid silver mounted example. The jug also sits on a collar type foot and the pontil is ground and polished out, another sign of quality work.

A very stylish item which would also be ok to use today. It holds well over a standard bottle (750ml). Glass in good order with just minor wear. Some wear through to the silver plating in the vulnerable spots but not of major significance. Hinge and lid working fine and sitting flush. Height 27 cms (10.5 inches) Width 14 cms (5.5 inches) max Weight 1190 grams (before packing).
