Here we have the claret jug with six goblets for sale.  The jug and goblets are made from solid silver and gilded on the inside; each of the goblets is finely engraved with a different design depicting major events that occurred during Churchill’s life.  The jug weighs 824gm and is 26.3cm in height and each of the goblets weigh 172gm and are 15cm high; each item has the Garrad’s stamp and appropriate hallmarking on the base.
