Thanks Anne,

Would you have an idea of age, and what it was used for, i'm presuming milk, but i maybe way off the mark as jugs are not my thing, would i be right in guessing it might be bohemian in style ?

Hi Gary and welcome to the board. Jugs are notoriously tricky to pin down to a maker unless it's a design in a catalogue somewhere e.g. one of the pressed glass designs.  The decoration might give a clue though, let's see what other members think.

I am not sure John but it suits it perfectly. I have a lot of problems trying to find lampshades that suit. There is a limited supply of interesting ones. I have 2 great (not matched) Archimede Seguso lamps but cannot find the right lampshade for them.

Lamps are cheap compared to vases and large bowls, so I have bought around 15 of them and shuffle them around as the mood takes me THis one, however, is in the perfect place in the foyer of my house.

Unfortunately I haven’t got H’s book, but you can certainly feel the random bubbles on its inside
Hopefully you’ll be able to see the seeds/bubbles in the glass (base and body) - there are also quite
a few impurities visible ( minute black specks)
Its top is also slightly oval in shape and it has quite thick walls—not sure how relevant this is!
If it is a Nazeing piece, and that’s a big if, I suppose it could possibly be an early one!
Anyway, many thanks for your input— much appreciated.

I would definitely hold onto it.
They aren't new and I think the enameling is different to anything I see on other items.

One day I'm sure we will find out where they were made and where they were enameled. 

And no - they are not practise pieces as far as I know.  I've seen one sold at auction and I also owned one (sold mine without knowing what it was - mistake)  all with the curious naive enamelling.

Glass / can anyone help me identify this old glass jug

Hello to all, good morning.
Can someone please help me out on this little glass jug of my mothers. i have dabbled in glass for quite a few years, but after searching the  internet i can't seem to get any further.
It is around 3 inches high, and weighs 107g, it looks pretty crude in design and is not lead crystal, but it is hand blown. The gold leaf is looking a bit tired and has mostly worn off on the bottom of the jug.
If anyone could throw any light on it's age, origin etc i would greatly appreciate it, as i seem to be going around in circles on the net.

Kindest regards
