Crystal and Sterling Silver Henley Claret Jug by Carr's Silver
Give your table a touch of classic elegance with a Henley cut crystal claret jug from silversmiths Carrs.
Tall and slim in design, the quality cut crystal allows the rich scarlet of the wine to shine through. The sterling silver handle has a graceful, Art Nouveau style curve, complemented by the silver lid and spout. The heavy base adds reassuring stability.
These decanters were extremely popular among discerning Victorian wine drinkers; although these days, the claret jug is better known as the golf Open Championships trophy! Today, they make wonderful gifts and decorative items; and if you want to use your claret jug for its original purpose, it pours perfectly!
Carrs is a family-run silversmiths based in Sheffield, the heart of Britain’s silver industry. The hand-finished handle and top of the jug is made from 925 sterling silver, which was hallmarked at the Sheffield Assay Office. The body of the jug is made from 24% lead crystal.
Size: 31.5 cm tall (12.5”)

The Henley claret jug comes in a quality gift box. (But sorry, the claret is for illustrative purposes!)
