That reeded handle of the opalescent jug is quite common in the US. If the pontil is ground, polished and slightly concave I would look to Phoenix as the maker. They made a lot of these smaller size pitchers in the late 1800's.

Depends where the owner is, late 1800s US glass is not so common in the UK. Trade then mostly seems to have been the other way.

Thanks, Ron and Christine.

The pontil is ground, polished and concave.  I am in the US.  The seller believed it was Monot Stumpf, and although the coloring is somewhat similar to Monot Stumpf open salts I seen, the opalescent striping is not quite the same and there is no iridescence.
