    Peloton glass doesn't often turn up for sale in Australia, so I was fortunate to win this as the only bidder.
    This Victorian glass jug is made from clear glass with a crackle decor, as well as very fine Peloton threads in pink, blue, white, & yellow. It measures 16 cm tall, around 12.5 cm wide across the top (including handle) & 7 cm across the rounded off four sided base.
    The jug has an applied clear reeded handle & there is a neatly polished out pontil mark on the base.
    In the last photo it is shown with a drinking glass in a very similar decor which has been in my collection for around 15 years. Pleased to have found it a matching companion!
    Most likely Bohemian origin.

      Many thanks, kwqd! Yes, it's always nice to make up a set, no matter how long it takes, it's just so rewarding to bring matching pieces together.

      Thanks also, philmac51 - & yes, I agree, this is a particularly fine version of Peloton that's simply brimming over with texture...

      Lori, that is so kind of you to say! My collection means so much to me, it's been a rock in hard times, & a labor of love, & it's wonderful to think that you find it inspiring...
