Extraordinary Jugendstil large wine jug made by the Carl Deffner workshop of Esslingen, Germany, circa 1905. A multi-segmented monkey guards the domed top, while its long tail forms a curved, open handle. The silvered tankard is enhanced with Jugendstil whiplash designs in relief. The monkey, as well as the spout and round foot, are all gilded. Firm's marks beneath. 5 7/8" W., 15 1/2" H.
