A gorgeous hand painted cranberry glass
or ruby glass jug (or pitcher
if you're in America).
In excellent antique condition with
only the right amount of scratching
on the base to show its a real one.
Of course the unground pontil to the base
is also an excellent telltale sign of
its manufacturing date of c.1875.
It also has a lovely substantial reeded
clear glass handle and pretty hand painted
enamel flowers all the way around it.
It measures 18cm (7inches) high and approx.
13cm across (5 inches).
