Until the 1670s, wine was served at the table in jug or green glass bottle. The decanter started to appear after 1670 and usually took a jug form, it wasn't until the middle of the 1700s that decanters were seen in a form we are more familiar with now.

 

This is a very finely engraved claret jug with a finely engraved and blown stopper. Engraved with a beautiful foliage and floral design,

 

Condition is very good
