Little iridized red ewer
« on: August 28, 2006, 12:22:23 PM »
I've been asking questions about some Murano glass over on that part of the board, and in amongst the pieces is this little red jug.  It stands about 4 inches high.

It was suggested that it might not be Italian, and that someone over here might have some ideas about it.

Here we are:

I'm bumping this up - Paul (chuggy) had a look at it when we met on Monday, and is positive it isn't Italian.

It looks as thought the glass was dipped in a sort of coating, and then blown, so the coating spread out and broke up.  There is coating on the base as well as the main "bulb" of the jug,  and a bit on the neck, the coating is finely granulated, but smooth to the touch.

It is a delicate little thing.  And I dearly want to know where it is from, and when!!
