A Pair of Antique 19th Century Cut Glass Large Covered Sweetmeat Jars - (Code 8080)

  • £39500


A pair of good quality and attractive mid 19th Century early Victorian cut glass covered jars.  These examples would probably be large sweetmeats at their size and are ideal for sweets, nuts or just for display.   The bodies are heavily cut with strawberry diamonds and the bases are similarly cut.  They come with matching lids with V cuts to the tops and facet cutting around the shoulders.

They are produced in good quality lead glass and are in the Anglo Irish style.  They catch the light particularly well and are good showy pieces for the sideboard.



The bodies have minor nicks and chips as you would expect for the period.  One jar has a larger flake chip to the foot corner which is shown in close up for you and is approx 15mm across.  One lid also has a chip to the knop ridge approx 20mm across and again shown in the images for you.  The other lid has a flat chip to the knop sides approx 15mm across.  Minor clouding to interior base of one jar. They present very well as can be seen in the images.
