Two claret jugs, each with a swan's neck handle and mushroom stopper; elaborately cut throughout, with prism cutting at the neck and shoulder, the body cut with a band of 'strawberry' diamonds above a panel of ovoid lozenges, also cut with two leaf-shaped motifs beneath the handle, the base cut with a star-pattern; the stopper with radiating sections of diamond-cutting.
