Fabulous & rare antique to vintage George IV era Theodore B. Starr hallmarked sterling silver & intaglio etched & wheel cut glass 12.5" claret jug or decanter with ornate grapes & foliage bas relief decoration both in the sterling mount, handle & glass body and in wonderful condition! WOW, what a beauty! Thick & heavy crystal or glass body with footed base, the piece has a total weight of nearly 2.2 lbs and is in superb condition with a nod to the two small edge chips to the base! Quite unique and definitely gorgeous with the wine themed grape bunches & foliage on the vine decorating the spout, hinged lid, elegant scrolling handle AND etched into the oval shaped body! The back of the lid collar is marked "Theodore B. Starr, Sterling".

Theodore B. Starr was a company of silversmiths founded in New York in 1862 by Theodore Starr. In 1864, he was joined by Herman Marcus, and the company became known as Starr and Marcus. Marcus left to join Tiffany's in 1877, and Starr bought back control of the company, with the name of the company becoming Theodore B. Starr. The company was incorporated in 1907 by Starr's son, before being bought in 1918 by Reed and Barton and finally closing in 1923.

A beautiful piece here, don't miss it!

Very good to excellent condition. As mentioned above and shown in the images, there are two small chips to the edge of the base and scuffing to the bottom. No other damage, cracks or flaws to the glass. No damage or repairs to the sterling top and handle. See pictures for all measurements.
