I think this is absolutely great and I paid much more than I normally would for such a piece. A great blown out figural and finely detailed Elkington & Company sterling and gilt claret jug/pitcher. Nicely blown out classical figures of Artemis on either side with floral, oak leaf and ivy surrounds. One side also has a deer and greyhound or whippet besides Great floral relief collar with splendidly detailed liberty head underneath the spout. The handle is extremely finely scrollwork detailed with a rams head mount base. The base is again finely scrolled with florals and 2 busts of "Zeus" while Leto is finely detailed under the spout. Amazing quality and attention to detail with 2 sets of touche marks, one under spout and another set under base. This measures about 10 5/8" tall and is about 5 5/8" across, 3 7/8" thick. Weights a bit over 23 troy ounces.
