A superb quality Victorian silver wine ewer with a circular body richly decorated with hand-chased and cast classical scenes of chariot racing and dancing. This is an exceptional example of a Victorian claret jug.

Neoclassicism was born in Rome in the mid-18th century before spreading throughout Europe. It is the name given to Western movements in the arts and architecture that draw inspiration from the classical art and culture of Ancient Greece or Rome.
