Green pitcher & tankard with applied blue rims
« on: August 08, 2012, 10:30:16 PM »
Bought these together ages ago, and just found them in the bottom of a box today.

Not entirely sure they 'belong' together, as they're different colours and have different shades of opaque blue to the rim. The glass of the tankard is quite seedy, and the pitcher less so - but they both bear obvious tooling marks.

They're the same height (17cm), and both are finished off with a polished pontil mark. The pitcher has a LOT of base-wear... the tankard less so, but it is much lighter in weight.

Thanks for taking a peek.  :)

Colour and style is a very good match for the pitcher, but the handle is quite different. Of course, there could have been variations within the series.

I'll investigate further - thanks.  ;D

Very similar but no cocoa, I would say. The catalogue page and examples in Cottle shows both shapes having pump handles and in more of a brown green

I didn't think it would be quite so simple - it never is!  ;D

Thanks for looking it up, though - I couldn't track down much more about the series on the interwebs.
