This is a set of Georgian, hand-blown, Bristol Blue glass cream jug and sugar bowl dating from the turn of the 18th/19th centuries. The jug and bowl are in excellent condition for their age. This means of course that they show age related wear and tear to the rims of the bases consistent with some 200 years of use. They have rough pontil marks on the bases. The jug is of baluster form in the Bristol blue colourway, and measures 6.2 cm (2.5 inches) by 7.3 cm (2.9 inches) in diameter at the pouring rim. The jug is plain, without further ornament. The small foot has a base which measures 5.2 cm (2.1 inches) in diameter. The jug is 11.5 cm (4.6 inches) in height. The handle was first attached to the top of the jug and then finally attached near the base with a looped tail. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any evidence of restoration. There is the remains of a collector's sticker to the base. It weighs 246g (8 3/4 oz). The bowl is of cup form in the Bristol blue colourway and measures 11.2 cm (4.5 inches) in diameter at the rim. The bowl is plain, without further ornament. The bowl sits on a thick, plain stem with a basal knop and a domed and folded foot which measures 7.8 cm (3.1 inches) in diameter. The bowl is 11.9 cm (4.8 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, significant scratches or any evidence of restoration. It weighs 283g (10 oz).
