Object Description

These claret (wine) jugs are exquisite pieces of antique French drinkware, which are designed in a refined and elegant Neoclassical style. They are crafted from crystal glass and mounted with sterling silver. The jugs bear standard silver marks, as well as the maker’s mark for ‘H. Fres & Cie’ and that of the retailer, ‘Boin-Taburet/ A Paris’. Boin-Taburet was a retailer of luxury decorative arts and furniture, which was based in Paris in the late 19th and early 20th Century.

The jugs feature silver necks which are covered with silver domed lids and finials shaped like clusters of grapes. The necks are decorated with shaped panels and acanthus leaves and are fitted with short, foliate spouts. They are mounted with looping handles with leafy flourishes. Each jug features a bulbous body which is crafted from fluted crystal glass. The bases of the bodies are encircled by silver stiff-leaf bands. Each jug stands on a silver splayed foot which is decorated with stylised acanthus leaf patterns.
