Yet another outstanding feature of these jugs is the large applied Mascaron situated below the flared pouring spout. Both the lid interiors and spouts are in vermeil (18K gold on silver). The jugs are raised on four pierced scroll feet. Masterly hand crafted from the highest quality silver, the jugs are appropriately stamped with the French Minerve 1st standard silver mark.
Professionally cleaned by our Parisian silversmith, condition is excellent with light signs of use commensurate with light usage, no loss to the intricate silver mounts and just a few insignificant dings on the back of the scroll handles to note, no damage to the crystal bodies, and the vermeil interiors are well preserved. A truly stunning, uniquely styled, and very rare pair of 19th century French sterling silver figural embellished claret jugs, designed to grace the very finest of tables.
