Antique Silver CLARET JUGS description:

A table jug used for serving decanted wine, usually claret.

Antique Silver CLARET JUGS history:

The earliest examples date from the 1830s. They were made in large numbers in the Victorian and early 20th century periods, and are still being made today.

Antique Silver CLARET JUGS design:

The vast majority were made of cut (sometimes frosted) glass. The silver mounted tops incorporated hinged lids, and handles that extended down halfway or to the base. The mounts were often engraved or chased, and the glass bodies were found in many different shapes and varying ornamentation. Some earlier examples were made entirely of silver, and are often referred to as ewers.

Antique Silver CLARET JUGS collectors note:

The level of craftsmanship and their aesthetic qualities determine their value. Unusual shapes, such as penguins or sea-lions, or engraved scenes command the highest prices. But they must also be undamaged with good clear hallmarks, crisp detail, and well-fitting lids/hinges.
