Literature. The earliest form of silver flagon used for serving wine, beer and other cold drinks dates from the late 16th century, and the handsome baluster beer jugs followed shortly after in circa 1720. Silver wine jugs with hinged lids were introduced in the late 18th century. In the 19th century the silver claret jug became popular with its handsome crystal body through which the deep red coloured wine could be admired. In the late 1800s stylish crystal decanters with silver mounts became popular, sometimes two or three decanters would be fitted into a handsome wooden or silver tantalus holder and complete drinks sets would incorporate a tray, jug and matching goblets.
