Wrockwardine small wine or water jug

Stock Number: 4888

This is what we believe to be a hand-blown, late Georgian, marbled green and white glass water or wine jug dating from the turn of the 18th/19th centuries, c1800, and probably blown at the Wrockwardine Wood Glass House in Shropshire.   
 
The jug is in excellent condition for its age.  It shows age related wear and tear to both the rim of the bowl and to the rim of the foot consistent with over 200 years of use. It has a rough pontil mark on the kicked-in base.
 
The jug has a baluster shape with a pouring rim measuring 5 cm (2 inches) in diameter.  The applied handle is affixed to the top first.  The jug is 12 cm (4.8 inches) in height.   There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any evidence of restoration. It weighs 465 g. (~ 1 lb 2 oz.).
