9522 A pair of silver-mounted claret jugs

Click on the images to see more detail

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.
