Light amethyst sugar bowl & cream jug - a friend's gift

Stock Number: 3919

This is what we believe to be a set of Georgian, hand-blown, gilded, pale amethyst glass cream jug and sugar bowl dating from the turn of the 18th/19th centuries, c1800.  
 
The jug and bowl are in excellent condition for their age.  This means of course that they show age related wear and tear to the rims of the bases consistent with some 200 years of use. They have rough pontil marks on the bases.  
 
The jug is of baluster form in the light amethyst colourway, and measures 5.8 cm (2.3 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The main part of the jug is plain save for the remains of very rubbed gilding which may have expressed a message.  The conical foot measures 4.7 cm (1.9 inches) in diameter.  The jug is 12.5 cm (5 inches) in height. The handle was first attached to the top of the jug and then finally attached near the base with a looped tail.  There is a minute speck of white frit in the metal of the jug.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any evidence of restoration.  
 
The bowl is of cup form in the light amethyst colourway and measures 11 cm (4.4 inches) in diameter at the rim.  The bowl bears the remains of a gilded band under the bowl rim and the message "A Friends Gift" above some naive decoration.  The bowl sits on a plain stem that leads to a domed, and folded foot which measures 8 cm (3.2 inches) in diameter.  The bowl is 11.8 cm (4.7 inches) in height.  There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any evidence of restoration.
