5261 A Pair of Half-Bottle Claret Jugs


Click on the images to see more detail

This is a pretty pair of small claret jugs - ideal for a tasting comparison of half-bottles. They would be equally suitable for whisky or Brandy - or indeed any spirit, but perhpas their best application would be for half bottles of two fine Sauternes...  That would be quite a treat!

They are late 19th century and completely plain, with ovoid bodies and loop handles and they rest on low conical feet.

 

Date: c.1880

Dimensions: 10", 24.5 cm high incl. stoppers
