This is an exceptionally! good 'find' which arrived this morning, one I have been waiting for with juuust! a little concern for it's safety but! here it is and I am very pleased to share this beautiful Fritz Heckert c1885 claret jug with you.
In lovely condition with all the enameling and gold enamelling intact. The Cranberry/ruby glass has soft gold luster to it which is hard to show in the photos. The pewter (I think) handle has the most wonderful detail on it. The hinge has broken at sometime in it's life and has been expertly reproduced, and in time I hope will darken with age, otherwise you wouldn't know it wasn't original.
It stands...28.5cm or 11.1/4 tall
A beautiful, stunning thing..well!... I think so, I hope you do to...thank you for looking!.....:-)
