This superb pair of Art Deco style decanters, or claret jugs, is by Tétard Frères, a leading producer of luxury silver products founded in France in 1880. Each decanter features a bulbous fluted crystal body mounted with gilded solid silver: each decanter has a waisted silver-gilt foot below and a silver-gilt neck above, both moulded with foliate designs. Each neck is stopped with a hinged cover, and each issues a scrolled handle that attaches to the body at the shoulder.

Both jugs are fully hallmarked and bear the maker’s mark of Tétard Frères. The Tétard Frères company was directed by the brothers Henri, Jacques, and Georges Tétard, who inherited the firm from their father, Edmond Tétard. Under the three brothers, the company became famous for its finely crafted Art Deco style silverware. Tétard items were popular with the social elite of France in the early 20th Century, and they continue to be considered highly collectable today.
