An Antique Richardsons Wine Glass Goblet & Claret Jug Decanter Set - Victorian c1860 (Code 8105)
A fine quality mid 19th century antique claret jug and goblet set. The glassware is from the Richardsons factory and the jug and goblets have matching etched and frosted decoration in the form of stylised leaves. The goblets are of generous capacity for the period and feature flute cut stems and feet with star cutting. Both the jug and glasses are made from good quality lead glass.
The claret jug has a strap type handle and an applied foot. It is quite heavily constructed which adds to the feel of quality. The jug holds over a standard bottle of wine and the set would have been used for claret, red wine etc in its day.
The glasses and jug stand on a mahogany stand which has silver plated galleried sides with swagged details of grapes and vine leaves. The swagged sections can swivel in the pillars. The set sits very well together as you can see in the images and looks very grand sat on a period buffet.
