Early Victorian Spanish gilded water or claret jug

Early Victorian Spanish gilded water or claret jug

This is what we believe to be a Victorian, high quality, gilded, cut-glass jug dating from the mid 19th century, c1850, and probably originating from the La Granja de San Ildefonso glassworks from the provence of Segovia in Spain.  The glasshouse was and is famous for the quality of its giltwork.   THE DRINKING GLASS SHOWN IN THE MAIN PICTURE IS NOT INCLUDED.
 
The jug is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the base consistent with 100+ years of use.

Pair of Georgian Irish pillar and prism cut ship decanters

Pair of Georgian Irish pillar and prism cut ship decanters

This is what we believe to be a magnificent pair of Georgian pillar and prism cut ship's decanters dating from the beginning of the 19th century, c1805, and probably originating in Ireland from the Waterford glasshouse.  The pattern to which they are cut complete with the shape of the neck and pouring rim appears in Phelps Warren - Irish Glass in plate 96 which shows the Samuel Miller - Waterford Glass House Patterms from the period, albeit applied to a cylinder decanter as were all the patterns.   The Waterford glasshouse was also well known for its prism and pillar cutting.
 
The decanters are in excellent condition for their age.  This means, of course, that they show age related wear and tear commensurate with some 200...

This is what we believe to be an English, two-ring, Georgian, Prussian-shaped decanter dating from the early 19th century, c1820. 
 
The decanter is in excellent condition for its age.  This means, of course, that it shows the age related wear and tear to the rim of the base commensurate with some 200 years of use.  The pontil mark at the base of the decanter has been polished out.
 
The neck of the decanter is petal flute-cut and is decorated with two annular neck rings.  The body of the decanter has a medial band of small crosses and a basal band of hand-cut finger flutes to the base.   The base measures 10.5 cm (4.2 inches) in diameter.  The decanter is 22.5 cm (9 inches) in...

Victorian moulded glass cream jug, applied handle

This is what we believe to be an early Victorian moulded glass cream jug dating from the middle of the 19th century, c1850.  It is of particular interest as an example of a transition piece showing elements of both hand-made and machine (moulded) made elements.
 
The jug is in excellent condition for its age.  It shows age related wear and tear to the rim of the foot consistent with some 150 years of use. 
 
The jug has a baluster-shaped bowl measuring 5.8 cm (2.3 inches) in diameter at the pouring rim.  The bowl is plain save for two rows of moulded large diamonds below a row of moulded printies.  The handle has been first applied to the top of the jug and afterwards to the bottom...
