    Victorian era. Blown into a mould to form the ribs and then put on a pontil rod to form top crimps and handle. The cranberry beads in the centre of the flowers would have been applied while the jug was still hot but after the jug had been acid dipped? The blue is a subtle tone - clear glass over blue over white. The way the spout and the top rim have been made reminds me of Bohemian jugs. There is a snapped pontil and the bottom has been flattened to ensure stability. Graceful and pretty. Not sure if it was purely decorative or had a commercial use at the dinner table? Height is 21.5 cms and just under 9 cms at widest part of body. Manufactured by?

      Very pretty! Riedel often used pale blue satin glass, so they are a possible maker.

      Thank you, Michelleboo7 for that interesting information. I don't know much about the firm but I will look them up and see what they made around that period that the jug belongs to. I'm glad that they appealed to you.

      Happy to help! If you google Riedel satin vase, you'll see quite a few examples.
