Description

A very early 20th century Secessionist style claret jug.  It has a German standard 800 grade silver mount with stamped marks shown in the images for you.  We have been unable to identify the silversmith in this case. The style is secessionist with an angular handle and geometric form to the mount.  There is a large thumblift and the hinge mechanism is working fine.

A stylish example of good size and holds well over a bottle of wine.  The shape and style would also lend itself to being used from cocktails and lemonade as well as more traditional clarets and red wines.


Condition


Good for period. Minor wear an aging to the silver. Light wear to the body. No significant faults.

Description


A very late 19th century Royal Crown Derby vase. It has the date cypher for 1899 making it late Victorian in period. It is decorated in the traditional Imari style, and the pattern number is scripted to the underside (1757). This pattern seems near identical to the 1128 and is perhaps a slight variant.

To the underside are the Derby printed marks and script detalis. A very pretty little example.

Condition


Very good order for period, just some very slight gilt wear. A nice example.

Description


An unusual antique Bristol green wine glass with a fine band of Greek key decoration. It dates around 1830-40 so it could be George IV, William IV or even early Victorian in period. It is of two part construction with a slender drawn stem and cup shaped bowl. The foot is conical and the pontil is ground and polished away. The glass is English lead and it is quite finely blown for the period.

The main interest is in the gilded Greek key pattern which is particularly well executed for the period and also has very little wear considering the age.

Certainly a rare find with this design and a great addition to a Bristol green glass collection.

Condition


Glass in excellent order with no damage and minimal wear. Some wear to the gilding to the rim but very little wear to the decorative gilt band

Description


A late 19th century antique Tunbridge ware box inlaid with a scene of Muckross Abbey. The box is of rectangular form and quite shallow, the interior is not divided so the box could be used for any number of purposes. The box is finished in rosewood and the image of the abbey is set into a pale wood (probably satin). The outer lid has a geometric band and the lower box is just in the rosewood. The interior of the box is lined with mahogany panels which adds a nice finish and is a good sign of a quality piece.

The box has the original brass hinges, there is no lock and the box holds shut via friction. A nice looking example with many potential uses as well as for display. Cleaned, polished and ready for display.

Condition


Generally very good. Some normal shrinkage splits in the top veneer but otherwise no significant faults.

Description


A Dudson light blue jasper ware jug decorated in bas relief with the Dancing Hours design. The style copies that of Wedgwood and is very similar in many aspects. The jug is around the size you would use for milk, but it would also make a nice small sized vase. The interior has been glazed so it is fine for use with liquids.

The jug is dated for 1978 and has the Dudson marks to the underside. It is nicely produced and the applique whilst not perhaps having the deft touch of Wedgwood is well executed. A nice looking item.

Condition


Good order with no damage, minor wear only. No chips or cracks. Interior is glazed so suitable for use as a vase.

Description


A late Victorian claret jug of round form with a Hallmarked silver mount. The body is decorated with arched panels of cross cut diamonds interspersed with fans. The body is also gently ribbed which gives a nice optical effect around the jug.

The silver is Hallmarked for London 1891. It also has the makers mark EF HT which is for Edgar Finley & Hugh Taylor (Horace Woodward & Co) of Birmingham.

A nice looking example and a little more unusual being of round form. It holds a standard bottle of wine.

Condition


Generally very good for period. A few minor scratches around the body. Interior clean and fine for use. Hinge and lid working fine. Mount good with typical age related wear.
