Antique Venetian Glass Jug Cased White Metal Filigree Mounts Victorian c1890 (Code 8425)
A very interesting late 19th century Venetian, or facon-de-venise jug. It is in the 17th century style and has almost a gothic or ecclesiastical look.
The jug body is baluster in form and it has a conical foot, the rim has a pinched pouring lip. The body is cased in plated mounts and white metal wire. It is a very attractive item with an unusual and striking look. It is perhaps a little small for wine so may have been used for stronger drinks.
A great opportunity to acquire a scarce and unusual design.
Glass in good order. Some wear to the plated parts of the mounts through normal cleaning over the years. Some deformations to the wire decoration. Generally displaying very well as you can see in the images.
Height 18 cms (7 inches)
Width 9.5 cms (3.75 inches) across body
Weight 400 grams (before packing).
