Description / Expertise

Large and impressive claret jug by the incomparable Elkington & Co of Birmingham circa 1880.  This jug is hand-made and features excellent hand-chasing and even has fine hand engraving on the handle.  It has its original insulators in the handle so that it could be used for mulled wine.  It still has two vacant cartouches that have never been used.  The jug holds 1.7 litres of liquid, does not leak and pours elegantly.
