A stunning and rare PAIR of antique French sterling silver mounted claret jugs, their crystal bodies sumptuously draped with finely detailed floral & fruit garlands, and hinged lids with floral finials. Surmounted by impressive figural panthers, the elaborate foliate clad scroll handles are supported by exquisitely detailed cast and chased figural PUTTI. The feet of the putti repose on one of the four striking high relief cast & chased Mascarons (masks), surmounted by 'Marie'-Antoinette' bows, that decorate the gadrooned bands which circle the crystal bodies. Yet another outstanding feature of these jugs is the large applied mascaron situated below the flared pouring spout. Both the lid interiors and spouts are in vermeil (18K gold on silver). The jugs are raised on four pierced scroll feet.

Masterly hand crafted from the highest quality silver, the jugs are appropriately stamped with the French Minerve 1st standard silver mark (.950), and maker's mark for celebrated Parisian silversmith PAILLARD Frères, active 1868-1888. Professionally cleaned by our Parisian silversmith, condition is excellent with light signs of use commensurate with light usage, no loss to the intricate silver mounts and just a few insignificant dings on the back of the scroll handles to note, no damage to the crystal bodies, and the vermeil interiors are well preserved. A truly stunning, uniquely styled, and very rare pair of 19th century French sterling silver figural embellished claret jugs, designed to grace the very finest of tables.
