My favourite crystal jug - but who made it?
« on: November 13, 2010, 01:32:55 PM »
I like the decoration - it is so neat and precise.  The detail of the base star and all of the other stars makes me feel that tis is by a superior maker - but I can find no marks whatsoever. 

I would really like to get a line on the maker if I can.  I have had it c. 25 years and it is used regularly.

I once had a small sherry glass with an engraved band like that.  I considered it to be very late Georgian, about 1830.  I believe your piece is as well.  Cut glass of that period usually wasn't marked. 
A large amount of it was produced in Bristol.

Thanks for the opinion Frank.  I have to say I think a really well-made, detailed piece and Georgian glass is not common over here.  My reservation is that it is very CLEAR glass - rather than the slightly brownish shade old glass seems to have or the greyish tinge old crystal usually has.  I am not at all conversant with glass from the 1830's - as I said there is not a lot in Melbourne, and the one dealer I knew who used to import lots has retired from business and I have no contact.

The Georgian style was reproduced later in the 19 c and in the 20th c.  Could date later.  I would be interested to see what others think.
