Christopher Dresser Claret Jug*
Silver mounted claret jug designed by Christopher Dresser and made in London by Jonathan Wilson Hukin and John Thomas Heath.
Cylindrical, rising from a spreading base decorated with a cut star, the glass jug is surmounted by a deep collar at the top and a narrow band further down the body.
Attached to these mounts is an upright silver handle which curves slightly away at its top end.
Engraved on the circular hinged lid are the words ‘Pass the bottle – drink to the hounds of the Meynell’.
Hallmarked London 1881 and also with a design registration mark for the date 9 May in the same year.
The height to the top of the handle is 22.5 cm. and the capacity is the usual single bottle 750 ml.
N.B. An example of this particular design is held at the V & A museum in London.
