Sunderland blue wrythen-moulded cream jug

Stock Number: 4837

This is what we believe to be a hand blown, "Sunderland" blue, wrythen-moulded glass cream jug dating from the turn of the 18th/19th centuries, c1800.  The jug is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the foot consistent with some 200 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the foot. 
The jug has a baluster-shaped bowl measuring 6.7 cm (2.7 inches) in diameter at the folded over pouring rim.  The bowl is plain save for the wrythened ribbing and ends in a kicked-in base.  The base of the jug is 6.2 cm (2.5 inches) in diameter and the jug is 8.3 cm (3.3 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any obvious evidence of restoration.  
A good, clean, period jug weighing in at 138 g. (~ 4 3/4 oz.).
