Elegant pair of French sterling vermeil and crystal claret jugs or wine decanters. Made by the prestigious silversmith Edmond Tetard who worked in Paris during the period 1880-1903 at 4 rue Beranger, Paris. The decanters have various floral and foliage accents on the hinged lid, neck, and handle. The cut and etched crystal in bulbous form mimics the same design. The base is characteristic French design with floral swags and laurel leaf motif. Fully hallmarked with the French Minerva standard mark for 950 silver content and the French made export mark of Mercury. The maker's mark for Edmond Tetard, a diamond shaped lozenge with ED.T, is on the base. The decanters measure 9.5" high by 3.5" wide. They are in excellent antique condition with a wonderful soft gold patina. Such a treat to find a perfect pair!
