9522 A pair of silver-mounted claret jugs
This pair of claret jugs have glass bodies cut all over with hobnails in graduated rows. The bases are star-cut. The silver mounts with angular handles and knob finials were assayed in London in 1898, and have the makers' marks of John Grinsell & Sons.
These claret jugs appear quite small but do hold a full bottle each with ease. The glass is very 'bright', and they feel solid to hold. The sterling silver mounts are fully hallmarked
Pairs of claret jugs are fairly uncommon - much more so than pairs of decanters.
