Lidded claret jug with gilded interior and elaborately decorated handle. The pattern used over most of the body is of floral scrolls interspersed with riders (one European and one Indian) and with hunting animals attacking wild beasts. A free-standing figure in the form of a rider with a spear is soldered to the top of the lid. On the belly of the vessel is an heraldic shield with a stag coat of arms.
