I couldn't face going into town this morning (too much traffic!) so I went to a local furniture charity shop near me. They always have some interesting bits and pieces too, so I picked up this jug, and a cup and saucer. I think this jug is made of what is known as custard glass - opaque glass that glows under UV light. It could be English or maybe Bohemian. It does have some damage, as I think the smear of pink glass was maybe the amber stem continuing down. I expect it's late 19th century.
