Piece: Vic torian sterling silver and crystal claret jug
Claret jugs were mainly produced between 1830-1920 and are very collectable today.
Towards the end of the 19th Century more elaborate styles emerged as craftsmen
modified the traditional glass jugs with bands of silver to show o their skills.
This striking Victorian, antique silver claret jug by Horace Woodward of London
features a plain silver hinged top with cut crystal body.
