A rare silver mounted and glass engraved claret jug by W. and G. Sissons. The body of the claret jug in hand engraved glass is decorated with robins sitting on holly branches and trailing vine leaves; mounted in silver including a scrolling handle and a hinged lid topped by a butterfly. The claret jug's silver mount is clearly hallmarked just below the hinged lid.
