Old Green Glass?
« on: September 01, 2005, 07:20:39 PM »
I seem to pick up more glass than I do pottery and yet I know hardly anything about glass.  :)

They both have lots of wear to the base and a rough pontil mark.

I'll admit that I bought this jug knowing it was damaged.  :(
Strange looking jug, it doesn't have a spout and it gurgles when pouring water out of it.

This one seems cheaply made. It is very light but I'm hoping it's victorian.

Any help on these would be very welcome. Thanks.  :)
