Very unusual pressed glass jug maybe early 1800's?
« on: July 25, 2007, 06:01:52 PM »
Hi

Bought this today, along with a carnival bowl (green peacock and grape) but this is very unusual. It has a picture of a queen (maybe early Victoria) and a rose across the bottom, a thistle on the left and a shamrock on the right.

The top has been hand formed and shaped and it looks as though it has been mould blown.

I did wonder if it was made for the coronation in 1836 but am not sure when moulded glass was first made like this?

It measures about 7" tall.

Anyone help please.

Mod: Photo's resized & added to GlassGallery:  :)

Bump.  Large photo's much smaller now and easier to view.
