Silverware – Churchill Centenary Jug & Goblets – by Garrads

Posted on Nov 24, 2011

Garrads & Co., the Crown Jewelers, issued a superb collection of nine distinct silverware items to mark the Churchill Centenary. Each were a limited edition of only 100 copies. This is a wonderful collection; all nine of the items were designed by John Spencer Churchill (nephew of Sir Winston) and Alex Styles, Garrads’s senior designer.

The nine silverware items by Garrads, to mark Churchill’s Centenary are:

  • silver claret jug with 6 goblets
  • silver punchbowl with ladle and eight cups
  • pair of 10 inch salvers
  • cigar humidor
  • cigarette box
  • pair of coasters
  • bon-bon dish
  • silver paper-knife with a Churchill medallion in the handle
  • small silver statue (three and a half inches high)

Here we have the claret jug with six goblets in the original presentation case.  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.
