Glass and Sterling Silver Claret Jug by Hukin & Heath Ltd – Art Deco – Antique – AC Silver (A6178)


Hello my name is Andrew Campbell, welcome
to AC Silver. This fine and impressive antique George V
glass and English sterling silver mounted claret jug is quite an exceptional example. It has been made by the renowned Birmingham
silversmiths Hukin & Heath Ltd. The piece has a rectangular chamfered form
in the iconic Art Deco style. The cylindrical neck is fitted with an impressive
sterling silver, hallmarked mount. The mount retains the original hinged, hallmarked
cover surmounted by a plain lobed thumbpiece. The piece is fitted with an impressive S shaped
faceted handle. The Art Deco style chamfered body is embellished
with a broad band of vertical cut glass ornamentation, in addition to a star cut motif to the underside. Full hallmarks struck to the surface, part
hallmarks to the cover are clear in keeping with where struck and the age of the piece. The glass is in perfect condition. The silver has been professionally polished
and can be considered in presentation condition. The highlighted features of this exceptional
Art Deco claret jug makes it one that could be sold with my highest recommendations. If you require any further information or
assistance regarding this exceptional claret jug, please do not hesitate to contact us
via telephone or email.
