Victorian Blown Glass Cruet with Opalescent Drape circa 1900
Presented by Gin-For's Odditiques. Victorian Glass Cruet with Opalescent Drape. Once upon a time, this cruet would have been called Nailsea style and attributed to a British company, late 19th century. Now, it seems that Nailsea never did anything with this opalescent swag, and while it may still be from the Stourbridge region, it could also be Bohemian (but I'm still figuring British).
Hey, at least the estimate on time period remains the same. The body is amber with the white/opalescent drapery, and the pontil is fully polished.
There's a definite age-wear pattern on the bottom, not some reproduction from the 70's (when reproducing cruets seems to have been especially popular). The body is flattened on two sides, and the handle is applied. The stopper is nice, but I'm effectively sure that it's a replacement. Height of the cruet itself is about 7 3/4. With the stopper, the total is about 9.Condition is excellent with no damage or repairs. But otherwise we're fairly flexible. If we can put it in the bank without anyone getting in a tizzy, we'll probably take it. If you have any questions, just get in touch. Again, we're open to options if needed. My joints may not be so flexible anymore, but our service can still bend to suit your needs.... With some limits, of course. It also stands for Ginny and Forrest, and Odditiques is oddities and antiques. I wanted top billing, but For-Gin didn't seem quite right in the antiques game. Hope you've enjoyed seeing the bowl and maybe got a chuckle, too. No extra charge for chuckles, giggles, or smiles. The photo with Berlioz is essentially our logo.
