This is a good example of a Victorian all-glass claret jug (which of course, can be used for any wine).  The body is of 'shaft and globe' form with a panel-cut neck.  the body has two bands of 'printies' (shallow circular or oval polished depressions) flanking a wider band of cut lozenges with star-cut centres.  The base is starcut and the tall hollow 'balloon' stopper is cut to match the body.   The jug has a loop handle witha flattened thumbpiece.

The jug is in very good condition with no visible restoration.

Date:  c.1850

Height 12.2", 31 cm.
