An extremely rare pair of small Victorian claret jugs, fashioned as Griffins.

Having green glass bodies, profusely etched with wings and feet to the lowe area. The handles having stepped connection points to the body. The silver heads of highly stylised form, and both having bead glass eyes.

Only the second time we have seen Griffins by Heath & Middleton, these late Victorian whimsys are an absolute delight.
