Blak Glass Creamer Pitcher
« on: May 11, 2007, 08:31:37 PM »
I recently purchased a lot of glass from a Glasgow Scotland seller.  In the lot is a small black pressed glass cream pitcher.  There are no marks but  I would like to know the maker and possible age of the piece.  Also, is this black amethyst glass? Thanks

Definitely black amethyst glass; I have a couple of these jugs and the matching cauldron style sugar bowl. If held to a strong light source in a darkened room you can see the purple glow. I can't add anything as regards age or maker. In style they look late Victorian, c1870s-80s but I suspect they may be much later. The moulding is quite poor on my examples with prominent fins along the mould seams.

Interestingly the cauldron style bowl is also known in cloud glass, seen here on Chris & Val Stewart's excellent site (at the bottom of the page):  http://cloudglass.com/other.htm

There does seem to be a lot of these cream jugs and tripod caulrons about, mostly in black / amethyst , there are a few found in purple  slag glass, even less in cloud glass and a few which are also marked with a thistle trade mark, as far as I know the maker is still unknown, although the thistle mark may suggest a Scottish glass maker

Any thoughts as to who the Scottish glass maker could have been?  I would imagine this is probably 1930s.
