Product Description

An elegant sterling silver and glass claret jug, assayed for Birmingham and dated to 1894.

Heavily influenced by the designs of Christopher Dresser, the jug has clean and elegant lines.

The date of 1894 would suggest that the maker was an early follower of Dresser, whose designs were made by Heath & Middleton, Elkington and James Dixon & Sons a decade earlier. Such designs were ahead of their time, and therefore ahead of the market. They proved too austere for the late Victorians and were only truly appreciated later with the emergence of the Art Deco, Bauhaus and Modernist styles.

The maker mark JG&S corresponds to John Grinsell & Sons, of Victoria Works, St George’s Birmingham.

The condition of the jug is very good, with only a few minor scuffs to the glass and silver.

Size: 20 x 12.5 x 10.5cm (8 x 5 x 4 1/8 inches)
Weight: 797g
