Victorian Aesthetic Period Etched Glass Decanter

Victorian Aesthetic Period Etched Glass Decanter


This is a magnificent example of a Victorian aesthetic acid-etched and silver plate claret jug.  Acid etching is the most prestigious and careful way of etching glass and this jug is no exception.

Proudly offered to you in perfect condition, it was made c. 1870.

The etching details a floral and leaf motif and is complemented beautifully with the strong and handsome silver plate handle and spout.

This claret jug is a rare specimen of absolute quality and is presented to you without any scratches or chips with only very minor marks at the top that are only commensurate with its age.

Its dimensions are:

Height: 32 cm / 13 inches
Width (inc. handle): 15cm / 6 inches
Weight: 790 grams / 1.75 pounds
