Description
This is a fine and very imposing antique Georgian sterling silver claret jug made by Thomas Heming and hallmarked in London 1777. Thomas Heming was principal silversmith to King George III and was responsible for making the coronation silver. This jug is heavily decorated overall and has a fruitwood handle which incorporates a thumbpiece. The silver body is in very good condition and the handle is fully secure but it has been repaired. Decorations are profuse involving two Chinese figures, acanthus leaves, fruit, flowers etc. and there is an attractive finial to the lid. The jug sits firmly on a square base which bears the hallmarks - partly rubbed but readable. The ornate cartouche bears a crest of a cockerel surmounted by a crown. The claret jug has been made with a heavy gauge of silver as one would expect from this fine silversmith.
