Vaseline and cranberry spattered sugar and creamer. Last 10 years of 19th century? This set was purchased on-line from England. The bowl appears to be over-sized but sugar was served in lumps and had to be broken up with a glass sugar crusher before being added to the cup. The jug's mouth is heart shaped and was a popular design element during this time period. The pontils have been snapped and fire polished smooth. There are many bubbles and ash deposits in the glass mixture and each item has three casings - clear over cranberry over white so it is assumed it had to be made by one of the bigger English firms. The bowl's foot is vaseline and so are the jug's handle and foot. The vaseline mixture glows brightly under a black light. Dimensions: both items are 10 cms tall; width of bowl across the top is 14.5 cms and its foot is 8.4 cms wide.
