Description


An early 19th century late Georgian period jelly glass. It has a long conical bowl with everted rim and the lower half of the bowl is cut with flutes. The bowl is connected to the stem with a knop and the foot is conical and has had the pontil scar ground and polished out. These glasses were popular during the 18th and early 19th century and again in the later 19th century for liquid type desserts such as syllabub or custards. The glasses would be stacked on tiers of tazza to make an attractive disply. These custards and syllabubs were often served as palette cleansers between courses.

Wear to the base as expected, body good with a few scratches.

Description


A 19th century Victorian period small drinking glass with reduced capacity bowl. The bowl of the glass has thicker than average walls particularly near the base so you get less drink than you may have expected. They were used as toasting glasses (so you could keep going longer) but also at coaching stops which is where this example was probably employed. It allowed the coaching stop to increase their profits at the expense of the customer -and interesting comparison with todays motorway services! The size of this glass would have meant it was used for spirits such as brandy. The bowl on this example has broad hollow flute cutting and the stem is of baluster form. The foot is quite strudy and has a ground and polished pontil. It dates around 1870 and is far better made than the average coaching inn glass, they are usually fairly basic being utilitarian pieces.

Condition


Very good for period with very minor wear only. Slight trapped air bubbles in the glass from production.

Description


A late 18th century Georgian period dwarf ale glass. This example is interesting in being at the small end of the scale size wise, making it a truly dwarf version of an ale glass. The bowl is largely conical and it has wrythen ribbing over the lower section which extends down through the stem. There is a top ball knop and a basal swelling. The foot is conical and the pontil scar has been left rough snapped. It dates to the end of the 18th century, c1780-1800 and is an English example produced in lead glass.

Condition


Some scratching inside the bowl from over exuberant cleaning. Two air bubbles in the bowl from production, one near to the rim, further air bubbles in the foot.

Plenty of usage wear as you would expect for a commercial item. Lots of wear to the base, scuffs and scratches around the body. Knocks to the collar and hallmark rubbed. Some water marking internally.

Description


A 19th century Victorian period flagon style serving decanter in thick brown glass. These items were used at taverns and inns for stronger drinks and spirits, and this example has a collar with 'Brandy' etched into it. They were made to be tough for commercial use and are generally of quite heavy construction as here. It has a small applied loop handle and the body has been mould blown. This style of serving piece was used for quite an extended time period, the consntruciton of this example suggests a date around 1860 or so. They originally came with cork stoppers, this more elaborate silver plated example it now sports is a replacement.

Condition


Lots of wear to the base, plenty of wear with scuffs and scratches to the body in keeping with a commercial item. Silver plating to the collar largely worn away through years of cleaning. Stopper is a replacement.

Description


A late 19th century Japanese early Moriage style covered jar style vase. It is of three parts with lid, body and stand. The cell pattern around the shoulders is in low relief with various patterns in gilt and enamels. The main body has further cell patterns and two scenes of people with extensive use of gilt. The stand has feet in the form of elephants heads and the patterning on this is in quatrefoil form. The lid is particularly interesting with a large pierced knop reminiscent of a a puzzle ball. There are no marks for identification but it would date around 1880. It is certainly not a form you come across often and the work on the patterning is particularly meticulous.

Condition


The knop has been reglued to the lid, either from being broken off, or restuck if the original adhesive had failed, there do not seem to be any significant losses. Some chips to the inside lip of the lid. Normal wear, some gilt rubbing and some small losses of decoration. Two of the small lugs around the shoulders Read more

Description


A very attractive Art Deco period engine turned and enamelled silver case. The workmanship is first rate and it is heavy for it's size having lots of silver content. Perhaps the most interesting feature though is the hallmark for Poland which is quite a scarce find. There are also further marks which are not very clear but likely to be the silver grade and town mark. Style wise it is very much Art Deco and it would date to the inter-war period. The interior is gilded and there is an inscription etched into the inside. The case would have been used for slim cigarettes. A great find and a lovely piece for the collector.

Condition


Good order with just minor wear.
