Wondering if anyone knows the age on my claret jug.






It is signed, "Sterling Made in Italy Cartier".[/img]

Hi Darlyn

Fascinating piece! :) I think it says Made in Spain though?

Yes, that is so odd.  The piece is fabulous.
Wondering about the "Spain" and Cartier.

Darlyn,

Cartier are a French company. There's a fascinating history on their site www.cartier.com. It might be easiest to approach them directly.

I'd be guessing it's post 1980, but do ask the company.

Good luck with it!

Cathy
