An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Victorian English sterling silver claret jug, made by George Fox; an addition to our diverse wine and drinks related collection
This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver claret jug has a bulbous rounded knopped form onto a circular domed foot.
The swept neck and body of the jug are embellished with chased decorated scrolling strapwork bordered panels incorporating fruit and foliate designs on a matte background, intersected by bead motifs accented with trellis ornamentation.
The body of this impressive claret jug is further ornamented with chased decorated stylised leaf designs to the lower portion and spiralling stylised bird designs accented with rosette motifs to the main portion.
The decoration to the main portion of the body incorporates a large vacant oval cartouche to either side.
Each incurved portion of the knops are ornamented with a stylised egg decorated border and floral motifs.
The flared rim to the lip of the jug is embellished with a broad band of applied ribbed decoration.
This impressive jug is fitted with an exceptional cast S scroll handle with a figural ornamentation to the upper portion and a tapering rope twist design to the lower portion.
The lower socket features a bifurcating scrolling design with stylised leaf terminals whilst the upper curved bifurcating socket is embellished with chased leaf designs.
The opposing interior side of the lip, below the upper terminal to the handle, is ornamented with a chased decorated grotesque mask.
The foot is embellished with embossed decoration depicting flowing water incorporating conical shells and dolphin designs.
The underside of the foot bears the retailer's mark 'Lamburts, Coventry St, London'.
