About

An exceptional, fine and impressive vintage Elizabeth II English sterling silver and glass claret jug with matching goblets made by Anthony Elson, an addition to our range of collectable silverware. This exceptional vintage sterling silver and glass set consists of a claret jug and six matching goblets. This impressive sterling silver and cut glass claret jug has circular swept, tapering form. The upper portion of the glass body is fitted with the original hallmarked sterling silver mount and cast domed hinged cover. The cover is ornamented with an impressive convex design style geometric trellis pattern; the ornamentation reflects the formation of the Classic pineapple finial. The cover is further ornamented with an impressive sterling silver circular tapering finial, featuring a broad upper plateau. This vintage claret jug is fitted with an exceptional cast sterling silver C-shaped handle with a plain incurved upper socket and further trellis ornamentation to the handpiece, identical to that of the cover. The tapering body of the jug is ornamented with cut-glass ornamentation, in addition to a star cut motif to the underside. Each goblet has a rounded bell shaped form onto a circular pedestal and circular domed foot. The cast stem of each goblet is embellished with design style decoration reflecting that of the jug's cover and handle. The goblets retain the original gilt interior. The underside of each goblet bears the retailer's mark 'English Silver, George Tarratt'. These exceptional examples of vintage silverware were made by the renowned artistic and imaginative silversmith Anthony Elson in 1974; these items will have been crafted in the same year but due to the hallmarking system the claret jug is struck with the date letter 't' and the six goblets bear 's'. Condition: This antique sterling silver claret jug and goblets set is a superior gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition. Each piece has been professionally polished and is in presentation condition. The cast decoration is very sharp. Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the jug mount and goblets, in addition to the part hallmarks to the interior of the claret jug are all very clear. Dimensions: Claret Jug: Length from back of handle to tip of lip 16.4cm/6.5" Diameter of base 14cm/5.5" Height 31.7cm/12.5" Goblet: Diameter of rim 7.4cm/2.9" Diameter of foot 7.1cm/2.8" Height 17.2cm/6.8" Total weight: 42.6 troy ounces/1326g (excluding claret jug) Maker: Anthony Elson Date: 1974 Origin: London, England Video: A video of this fine piece is available upon request.
