Description
A 19th Century Victorian hand blown English lead glass ' end of day “frigger” in the form of a pair of bellows displaying the Prince Of Wales Feathers. Measures: 24cm. No visible damage. Friggers were end of day items blown by glassmen using the remaining glass in the pot at the end of a shift. They were allowed to use up the glass and sell what they made from it but were not allowed to blow pieces that would compete with those they made for their employers. The result was a range of fanciful end of day pieces, or friggers, that showed off the skills of the glassblower and which were sold off to augment their salary. Condition is very good but it looks like the glassman has run short of glass on one of the bellow handles.
