1930s ART DECO CORALENE
LEMONADE JUG & GLASS SET



These large jug and matching glass sets are generally referred to as
Lemonade Sets but of course could also just be a good old Water Set.

This one is in fantastic condition; I doubt it has ever been used.
It is classic Art Deco design in both colour and shape but has an
extra special aspect to the design with its knobbly applied
glass decoration known as Coralene decoration.

It also has hand applied gold gilded decoration in geometric patterns
extolling it Art Deco-nish as well of course as its classic green depression
glass coloured glass mixed with the orange and green coralene stripes.

The jug (or pitcher as Americans like to call them) stands 22.5cm high
(9 inches) & the glasses or tumblers are 12.5cm or 5 inches tall.

The condition as stated is as new - no signs of any use whatsoever.
Even the gold gilding which is at the level where you would naturally
grab the glass and hence rub the gilding off is totally intact.
This type of gilding is very easy to rub so this is a minor miracle in itself.
Even the spout and the handle on the jug are perfect (which invariably they are not)
as can be seen in the close up photos.

I cannot find a fault to report or as I've seen someone else on ebay state
"Nothing to apologise for here" which I thought was a great way to say it.

Don't miss out on this museum quality example of Art Deco domestic glass.
