Antique 3 layer uranium glass encased jug ID please 😉
« on: January 23, 2019, 11:43:20 PM »
Good evening,
I recently bought this pretty little but quite heavy jug on eBay. It has an internal layer of pink, middle layer of white milk glass and top layer of yellow uranium glass. It has intricately formed ruffeled rim, uranium handle and well polished pontil. It is only 5cm tall but weighs over 300g. I searched everywhere I could to find something similar but can't find anything! Any ideas? Is it English? Many thanks in advance!

Can't say I've ever seen a rim like that, my first thought was Stevens & Williams, the second Walsh now I'm thinking Bohemian, such an odd looking piece, see what others have to say ;D ;D

Thank you, I am scratching my head too! It is an odd looking thing! The rim does look little bit like a set of bad dentures from a side! Better viewed from the top ha ha 🤣. It's a keeper for me anyway as it's so strange...

Reminds me of rhubarb and custard - yum :)
Gorgeous piece what ever it is.

I don't think it's Bohemian. Bohemian uranium glass tends not to be straight yellow or if it is it doesn't have such a high concentration of uranium (plain uranium is yellow and this is very yellow). I would go with English but I wouldn't speculate about who.
