This is a high quality, large, vine-engraved, Victorian, English (possibly Stourbridge) ewer or claret jug dating from the mid 19th century, c1850. The ewer is in excellent condition for its age. It shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the foot consistent with some 150+ years of use. The ewer has a baluster-shaped body with an elongated, dentated pouring lip measuring 12.5 cm (5 inches) by 9.5 cm (3.8 inches) in diameter at the rim. The neck and body are decorated with engraved fruiting and trailing vines. The applied plain glass handle was first affixed to the neck and was then finished off at the middle of the body.
