Glitterati advice needed - Mr Face Jug Pitcher
« on: August 07, 2012, 05:03:49 PM »
Greetings Glitterati

Can anyone identify this sweet pitcher I bought this afternoon at all?
Hes very "Pink" which makes me think he may be Czech and likely pre 1930 but ideas are always welcome from the forum!

I just liked him as a huge pitcher for the hot balmy days - or for Sweet William posys!
 ;D
Many thanks!
Antoinette

I think that is a Toby jug  but not the usual Whitefriars variety.

He appears to be wearing a crown?

Hi there thanks for your replies!
Yes he is wearing a crown - he has a look of the King of Spades in a playing card deck!

Relaxing under a parasol in the sun with him as a pitcher of Malibu & Lemonade as we speak!

I love to use my functional pieces!

Ivo - I see your Whitefriars connection with a but if t'internet research.. Though it's just his face not whole profile..

I'd be amazed if he were 1970's!!!
However happy to confide he was 25 and most on eBay around 30 so a 5 profit not bad! Can't see me winning Dickensons real deal though!!

 ;D

Hopefully someone will tell me he's 1890-1930 which is my preferred pressed glass era!!
But who knows!!

He is VERY pink not at all like my Walther/Sowerby peachy collections!!

Thanks Anne!
There's no makers marks obvious or anything - I have no idea of decade etc!!
He is a lovely colour though and has a lovely head of hair and quite a talking point!

They are gorgeous Antoinette! I wish we could iD the maker - datewise I'd suspect maybe 1930s-ish, but that's just my personal feeling - I could be out either way! :)

Oooh you are making me so proud of him!
He's faithfully sat on my side table with a cooler pitcher of Malibu & Lemonade!
I'd love to think him to be 1930's as this is my fave decade!

The nearest colour is one of my Czech circular comports with a lady in the centre - a real pretty pink which sparkles in the sunlight!
