Magnificent pair of glass, silver mounted claret jugs; the glass bodies are of baluster form with twist/spiral decoration and the glass is in perfect condition. The silver, lidded, mounts are of heavy gauge silver with C-scroll handles and gilded interiors. These lids and mounts are in perfect condition and of profuse foliate/floral design, and all the quality expected of this fine maker. High quality and hugely elegant.
