I was pleased when this lovely jug arrived last week it was the quality and colour that really attracted me to it and the four little feet...it just looked like it was going to scuttle off across the floor.

Again!.. it was s shocka! of a photo and the four lion heads just looked like blobs of amber glass so I was really surprised and pleased to find them when I unwrapped it!

I love the colour combination of the amber and ice blue, the close optic design on the inside gives an illusion of movement... running water.

It’s quite beautiful and... quite heavy for its size weighing in at … 1 lb. 3 ½ ounces or just over 1 kilo ..standing 16cm or just over 6 ½ inches tall.

I think it may be a Harrach jug but! of course I am not sure and would love someone to tell me what it is, and how old it might be!

Thank you for looking…..:-)

    Harrach or Heckert or maybe even Baccarat... the shape is very like a baccarat shape, (going from memory) the lions heads are familiar.. can't remember who I know did them. Quality jug all the way round though. I'll keep my eyes open for you.

    oh and whoever did it 1880's
  3. scottvez scottvez, 1 year ago
    I love that color combination as well! I've got one similar but with a stopper on top.

    I love the lions heads, thats what I thought I saw at first, and wondered if my eyes were playing tricks. Hope they love their new digs !~

    Greatsnowyowl...thank you very much for your comments and shall head off in the directions you have given. I have done some research on it but have not really come up with something concrete.. Harrach was a small possibility for me!... Really!! happy with the age a little later than I thought...I appreciate anything you can tell me...:-)

    I actually think Harrach is VERY likely. baccarat did have a nearly identical shape to this one but the one in the book is clear and iridized and has no lions. the feet the shape of the body and the handle style they used are all similar. but it's not identical.

    A very dangerous piece to gaze upon for those of us who would maintain a sangfroid decorum amidst art glass vessels!!! Woahhhhh. Congratulations on another splendid find, inky!!!!! : D
  12. inky inky, 1 year ago
    Many thanks AmberRose....:-)
  13. inky inky, 1 year ago
    Hello miKKo.. and thank you.. reading your comment at first I thought it was because of the presence of the lions..which would be advisable anyway…lol!

    Inky-- I posted mine today.

    It is a little taller and has an amber stopper. I need you to take the photos-- mine aren't that good:

    Let me know what you think.

  21. scottvez scottvez, 1 year ago
    Inky-- I checked the edge of the rim of mine and near the amber handle a "3" is etched.

    Since I have seen that before to match stopper to a bottle, I checked the stopper and sure enough on the bottom it has a "3".

    It is probably indicative that yours also had a stopper at one time!

    Now I looked again on your interesting Vase. Though, as a first guess, it Looks like Harrach, I now found, it is decorated with the very same lion heads, made from the same mould, as my "Brain Bronce Glass vase" of Webb is decorated with. This identifies your vase as being Webb, too.
