An Antique Edwardian Fine Quality Cut Crystal Glass Wine/Claret Jug Decanter (Code 6875)
A particularly good quality early 20th century cut crystal glass claret jug. It dates to the Edwardian period circa 1910 and is produced in lead crystal glass. It would have been used for serving wine at the dinner table or on a drinks table for smaller groups. Traditionally these items were used for claret or red wine but you can of course use it for whatever drink you fancy and these cut glass examples are particularly effective with coloured cocktails.
The jug features alternating clear pillars and panels of fine cut diamonds. The foot is applied and of heavy construction and features radial cutting to the underside. The neck is broad and there is a pinched pouring lip to make dispensing the drink easy. The handle is a nice touch being hollow blown and having printie cuts.
This claret jug holds over a standard bottle of wine and is fine to use with care and adds a great touch of class to serving drinks.
Very good order for the period. Wear to the foot through normal use but little wear to the body. No significant faults.
