An antique Victorian Silver & Crystal Claret Jug by W & G Sissons and dating from 1864. Here is a well known maker that has survived the test of time, having been established in 1784, celebrated its 225th years anniversary in 2009, and is still manufacturing from premises, close to its original Sheffield home, in nearby Chesterfield.

Now owned by Swiss manufacturer Franke, the Sissons name is still synonymous with quality and this is an perfect, early example of that quality.

When this antique claret jug was made by W & G Sissons in 1864 the product range was somewhat different. A company that currently manufactures sinks and sanitary ware became well known originally for tableware and cutlery and this is a fine example of their early craft.

We are offering this superb antique Victorian Sterling Silver mounted and crystal claret jug, with hallmarks for Sheffield 1864 and the makers mark of W & G Sissons, in excellent condition. These marks can be clearly seen in the accompanying photographs.

This lovely Victorian claret jug has an engraved crystal body which is fitted with a beautifully chased silver mounted handle and lid. The lid has been expertly and skillfully embossed with delicate floral band and scroll decoration and the delightful handle is formed in the manner of two scrolling "C's".

The crystal itself is engraved with numerous cut stars and has a star cut base.

Although this piece is of modest proportions, standing as it does just 10 inches tall, (26 cm), it will make a big impression on everyone who sees it. Quality prevails and this is without doubt a quality item that you can either choose to use for its intended purpose or alternatively place on display to delight your friends and guests.

The workmanship is outstanding and the chased decoration is very crisp.

There is no mistaking its unique quality and design, which is sure to make it a treasured piece by any discerning collector.

As with any fine antique silver item, we would recommend a personal viewing at our London showroom but if that is not a realistic possibility, then please take full advantage of the comprehensive range of photographs we have provided to satisfy yourself as to the quality and condition of this antique silver and crystal claret jug.

W & G Sissons.
The firm was established in Sheffield in 1786 as Roberts, Cadman & Co. The firm was managed by Samuel Roberts Jr. (son of Samuel Roberts Sr.) and George Cadman (who served his apprenticeship under Samuel Roberts Sr.). A "sleeping" partner (only financial, until c. 1794) was the Rev. Benjamin Naylor.
They were active as tableware manufacturers in Eyre Street, Sheffield, in the premises owned by Samuel Roberts Sr.
The partnership, with the addition of George Ingall (1816), lasted until 1826 when was succeeded by S. Roberts, Smith & Co. The partners of the new firm were Samuel Roberts Jr., his nephew Evan Smith, his cousin's son, Sidney Roberts and William Sissons.
In 1833 the partners were Samuel Roberts, Evan Smith and William Sissons. The firm Smith, Sissons & Co., which succeeded following the retirement of Samuel Roberts in 1848, was a partnership of Evan Smith and William Sissons Sr. lasting until 1858.
The business was continued by William Sissons Jr. and George Sissons under the style W & G Sissons, entering their first mark as Henry Smith in London Assay Office in 1864 (8 Duke Street, Adelphi, WC). Other marks were entered in London in 1866 by William Sisson and George Sissons (9 Eyre Street, Sheffield and 8 Duke Street) and in 1887 by Walter Sissons and Charles Sissons (75/77 St. Mary's Road, Sheffield and later on their London Showrooms at 34 Southampton Road and 3 Charterhouse Street, Holborn Circus).
Later the firm was converted into a Limited liability company and in 1943 the manufacturing silversmiths business was transferred to Bell Reproductions Ltd (a subsidiary firm).
Roberts & Cadman (1785) and Roberts, Smith & Co (1828) registered Old Sheffield Plate marks with the figural symbol of the "bell". The "bell" symbol was maintained by W&C and W&G Sissons in their electroplated silverware.
