We are delighted to offer you this highly decorated cut glass and silver plated mount claret jug.

A wonderful example of Victorian design.

As you can see from the photos, the detail of the mount, including the majestic lion is wonderful, as is the lattice cut glass.

The lip secures tightly on the mount. 

The handle is approximately one degree left of centre but is not noticeable and does not affect use. 

The engraving across all sides of the mount is fantastic, whilst the intricacy of design on the handle deserves time to be admired.

In excellent condition, this superb piece shows no signs chips, dents or repair.
