This is a very high quality claret jug made at the turn of the 20th century.

The glass is cut with a classic Art Nouveau design, reminiscent of WMF, with straight lines coupled with geometric oblong shapes. The star-cut base is a clear sign of manufacturer expertise and and product quality.

The silver plated mount continues the geometric theme, covered with a series of squares and parallel lines. Seen in the photos, the plating has been rubbed to the left and right of the spout but not to the detriment of the item's beauty.

A classic item from a brief but important time in history.
