Just found this large old jug. Found a very similar example in Millers Glass guide, says ice-glass c 1890. That one is just Cranberry, mine has a lovely fading to clear. Handles are just the same, moulded ribbed pattern.

Any ideas of origin? Stourbridge perhaps, somethings making me think it may be American? Maybe its because it resembles amberina glass.?

Its 9 1/2 inches tall. The texture is rough and crackly, and feels like sugar granules all over it.
Cheers
Andy

oops !  ::)
I knew i forgot something ! Small polished pontil mark, there are 2 ridges on the sides of the body of the jug, mould marks , i presume.

A good chance they came from the same place ! Feet look more English than my American theory.

I'm more inclined to English with Bohemian trailing behind

That is possibly Kralik from those feet, but the clear to cranberry and overshot are simple techniques to copy, so I wouldn't like to be definitive about yours, as it has no "particular" features

Theres a picture of a clear crackle jug in Hajdamachs British glass book, page 256 , same shape and handle, thought to be English, late 19th Century, and a description of the production of crackle glass with picture on page 265. The first use of crackle glass in the Stevens and Williams pattern books, was in 1877, page 287.
My jug seems to have this extra added sugar granule effect, presumably rolled in some clear glass frit, before the final heating and finishing.
Pretty sure this is Stourbridge.

yours is overshot glass :)
and beautiful.  But I doubt you will pin down a maker.  I would go for English first, then Bohemian if I was trying to research it.  But having researched many of these overshot items repeatedly, there is not a lot of evidence out there.  And your handle is generally referred to as 'reeded' I think.
