Scarce Georgian large glass oil lamp filler jug

Scarce Georgian large glass oil lamp filler jug

This is what we believe to be a scarce, Georgian oil lamp (often called a lacemaker's lamp) filler dating from the middle to late 18th century and probably Continental in origin.  It would be used for topping up the oil in the lamps dotted around the building.
 
The lamp filler is in good condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the foot commensurate with some 200 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the kicked-in foot which is nicely striated as is the bowl.
 
The lamp filler has a baluster-shaped bowl with a cylindrical upper section measuring 3.8 cm (1.5 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The filler measures 9.5 cm (3.8...

This is what we believe to be an English, Georgian, low tazza with a folded pedestal foot dating from the early 18th century, c1735.  Keith Kelsall shows a number of examples in his book "The Footed Salver". 
 
The tazza is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the bowl and the rim of the foot consistent with some 250 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark at the apex of the foot.
 
The tazza measures 29.5 cm (11.8 inches) in diameter at the folded over rim.  The tazza is plain and sits on a folded pedestal foot that measures 11.6 cm (4.6 inches) in diameter.  The tazza is 4 cm (1.6 inches) in...

Georgian engraved Irish broad based taper decanter

Georgian engraved Irish broad based taper decanter

This is what we believe to be a Georgian, probably Irish, engraved, broad-based taper decanter, dating from the late 18th century, c1790. 
 
The decanter is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows the age related wear and tear to the rim of the base commensurate with years of use.  
 
The neck of the decanter is decorated with three hand-applied annular neck rings.  The body of the decanter is decorated with emgraving of a band of hatched vesicas above a band of swags and tails and the letters "DMS".  The band of hatched vesicas would suggest a Cork Glasshouse origin and the band of swags and tails a Waterloo Cork Glasshouse origin. ...

Georgian trumpet bowl balustroid wine glass, domed foot

Georgian trumpet bowl balustroid wine glass, domed foot

This is what we believe to be a Georgian baluster wine glass or Kit Kat glass dating from the early 18th century, c1725.  Kit Kat glasses were so named becuase of the painting by Hogarth of men drinking at the Kit Kat Club and supposedly (but erroneously) using glasses of this shape.
 
The glass is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows the age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot commensurate with 250+ years of use.  It has a rough pontil mark on the foot.
 
The glass has a trumpet bowl measuring 8 cm (3.2 inches) in diameter at the rim.   The bowl sits on a stem consisting of a plain stretch above an inverted...
