$1,250

About the Item

Early 20th century glass claret jug with a sterling silver stopper, by American maker Theodore Starr in exquisite Art Nouveau style. Glass possibly Libbey or Hawkes. Bottle is designed with flowing tulips and waves, and stopper is decorated with small buds and waves in slight relief. Measuring 11 3/4” by 4 1/2” in width at the widest point. Bearing hallmarks as shown. Theodore B. Starr was a company of silversmiths founded in New York in 1862 by Theodore Starr. In 1880 "The Independent" published an article in which “The House of Theodore B. Starr” is described as an establishment that develops “an educated demand for ‘beauty in use;’” and where one will find “his taste and his intelligence stimulated.” The Metropolitan Museum of Art, who owns and displays pieces by T.B. Starr, champions Starr as “among the most prominent and influential jewelry and silversmithing firms in New York City during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries” whose work was “enthusiastically heralded in the press.” The company was incorporated in 1907 by Starr's son, before being bought in 1918 by Reed and Barton, and finally closing in 1923.
