Very Rare Victorian 1881 Claret Jug Spun Glass Sterling Silver Rhodes & Barber For Sale

Very Rare Victorian 1881 Claret Jug Spun Glass Sterling Silver Rhodes & Barber

This sale is for a Rare form of a Victorian Claret Jug.

The Jug is hallmarked for the makers of Jehoiada Alsop Rhodes & Barber in the year 1881,whoare well notedSheffieldsilversmiths in business from 1878 to 1884.

The jug, which measures approximately 7 3/4 inches tall by 4 3/4 inches across, is clean and clear in very good condition with only two issues to mention, the first is a very common flaw for antique handled hand blown pitchers - where the thin part of the tail of the glass handle attaches to the body of the pitcher, there is a crack (please see close-up photo) - this is from the time of making andhas absolutely no effect on the strength or function of the pitcher or handle- it is a result of the body of the glass being cooler than the molten handle and the quick contraction of the thin tail causes the crack - if you are not familiar with this, please check it out so as to confirm what I am saying. The second issue is that an approximately 1/4 inch of a line of the threaded spun red glass has been chipped away (again please see close-up photo) - again this does not affect the strength or function of the pitcher asthis glass threadis a surface application; however, it is there just the same.

The pitcher features not only the unusual spun glass and globular shape, it is also has been finely wheel engraved with a floral pattern.

The glass is unsigned, which was not uncommon for custom ordersof glass which was to only form a part of the finished product, as often the maker of the end product wished to have only their name associated with the piece, but the glass work is of a high quality and was likely produced by one of the better glass houses such as Webb or Stevens & Williams.

This is an important example of an unusual shape and design in Victorian Glass.
