Bottle Auction: Gorgeous / Fantastic / Wonderful !!! NAILSEA BLACK GLASS JUG, Circa 1790


Gorgeous / Fantastic / Wonderful !!!  NAILSEA BLACK GLASS JUG, Circa 1790 Bottle Auction Description: The Best! An adorable small English free blown black glass jug with an all-over stratum of white enamel inclusions; Bristol (Nailsea), circa 1790. If you collect early English or Nailsea glass, this is a fantastic example - the best, most charming we have had the pleasure of selling on eBay.The jug is free blown of dumpy form with a deep kick-up base and sharp pontil mark. The neck has sagged slightly after the jug left the glass furnace and this has given it the most wonderful amorphous shape like pulled toffee. The surface of the jug is covered with a stratum of white enamel inclusions - a technique learned from German or Bohemian glass blowers who came to work at Nailsea in the late 1700s / early 1800s. There is an old collector's label on the base.The jug is overall about 5 3/8 inches in height to the top of the handle and 4 1/8 inches in diameter at the widest point. It is in fabulous original condition with no chips or cracks and no restoration. A few of the white enamel surface inclusions have 'popped' when the jug cooled after blowing but this is a normal feature of this type of wear as the white enamel is rolled unevenly into the surface of the glass and does not always 'set' absolutely firmly (see photos 3 and 4).This is, in our opinion, one of the most beautiful, original and desirable examples of English glass that we have ever offered and we hope you will like it as much as we do.Best of luck and thanks for bidding with harmic.little - please bookmark our eBay page for all the best pieces of pottery and glass.
