Identifying and valuing Claret Jug

[b][i]Hi everyone
Could somebody please help us identify the maker of this claret jug, and maybe give us a valuation?

We thought originally that this was the jug used in the film Remains of the Day with Sir Anthony Hopkins. But when I researched the hallmarks, I think it shows a 1998 date stamp? (The film was made in 1993 so it cant be from that). One thing I couldnt find out is who the maker is. Does anyone know who WW could be in London?

It’s really pretty with lovely detail, but obviously not an antique if I got the date stamp right. Any idea how much this could be worth though?

Many thanks in advance.

Regards

You have the date right, 1998, but I cannot identify the maker. I have to say that it would not be to my taste, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder…

I would suggest a probable value of £150-£200.
