Hallmarked In 1909
Hallmarked in London in 1909 by Richard Hodd & Son, this incredibly rare, Edwardian Antique Sterling Silver Claret Jug, is in the form of a monkey, realistically posed and with glass eyes. The claret jug measures 11.5"(29cm) tall, by 8"(20cm) from handle to mouth. Animal shaped claret jugs became popular amongst the aristocracy in the Victorian period due to the expanding trade and travel at the time, which broadened peoples interest in the exotic and whimsical. These jugs were made rarely, to order, and by hand. There have been some noteworthy collectors of animal shaped jugs, including Her Majesty the Queen Mother, and the famous Kent collection of claret jugs.
