Edwardian Cut Glass Claret Jug With Silver Plated Fittings
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 good quality Claret jug with silver plated fittings. The glass body of the decanter is panel cut with a hatch design running around the centre of the body, even the underneath is decorated with a star cut design. This would have been used in a wealthy household.
Condition is good to both the silver plate and the glass.
Dimensions : 39cm high x 15 cm
