Help with Green Glass Jug
« on: January 28, 2007, 05:27:27 AM »
Here's another one. :D

My MIL got this off Ebay for me from the UK.   It's 18cm tall and the pattern has a real art deco feel to it. It's limey-green so it could be uranium glass? (need a black-light).  I'd appreciate anyone's thoughts on the possible maker/pattern of this piece.

Cheers,
Lyn

Hi Lyn,

This is the water jug from Sowerby's 2550 water set. According to Glen, it was made in the late 1930s, and it should glow under black light.

Cheers!

OMG! That's excellent :D Thanks so much for this info. May I ask where you find all this info, or is it just things you've learnt over your years of collecting? I have a few American Glass books and Australian Glass of the 19th & early 20th century. But I'm yet to find them particularly helpful in relation to my collection.  Can you recommend any other books or websites?

Cheers,
Lyn

On Sowerby, from our Glen Thistlewood's CDs http://www.geocities.com/carni_glass_uk_2000/SowerbySECONDcd.html , Sheilagh Murray's The Peacock and the Lions, and a bunch of badly indexed catalogue pages a friend sent me.

Best website is definitely here, and then also try Anne's glass links site:
http://glasslinks.yobunny.org.uk/

For pressed glass, there's Glen's site http://www.geocities.com/carni_glass_uk_2000/
Pamela Wessendorf's site http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/
Siegmar Geiselberger's http://www.pressglas-korrespondenz.de/

Yep that particular one glows, I can see it from here, but the green ones are not always uranium glass

Ooh Anne, the amber is lovely! Yes, I'm partial to Amber - call me strange :D Tho' it probably works in my favour as they are easier to come across at a reasonable price - unlike the green.
Cheers,
Lyn

I'm very partial to amber glass as well, so have quite a few bits of it floating around now. Jugs, tumblers and fruits sets mainly, but some bowls and baskets as well. Maybe I should create an amber glass site for those of us who do like it?!    ;D (That'll make Ivo wince!   >:D )
