Cranberry and white splatter jug

(1/3) > >>

a40ty:
Good afternoon all.
Lynne and Christine on 20th. Century Pottery have suggested that I post this jug here. I hope someone will be able to ID it for me.
Jug is 19 cm high and 16 cms wide at the widest.

Very difficult to photo the base, but I can tell you that it is very shallowly concave from the outer edge for about 2 cms in towards the middle. This area is "puckered", almost like the skin that forms on paint. (Or the wrinkles around my 50-odd year old lips ;))
The centre of the base is more deeply concave and completely smooth.

I have a couple of other pictures if these aren't enough.
Any help greatly appreciated!

Lustrousstone:
Hmm...

The wrinkling is often seen on mould blown stuff, so that's OK. Is that lots of base wear I see?

a40ty:
Afraid so! When we were kids, this jug held home-made lemonade and it was whacked around quite a bit. Strangely, there is much more wear to the one side. Perhaps it has been slightly uneven?

Lustrousstone:
If you've had it that long (cough), it's probably something that could date from late 19th C to 1930s and might very well be Bohemian. I might go with the more recent end of that time span - the glass looks very clear. But there again, I could be wrong. It's very nice, much nicer than yellow splatter

Hi Aine and Christine...;D
