Vintage 1930s-1950s Cross and Wedge Cut Glass Pickle Jar
For a full product description, see below.
This is a nice example of an early to mid-20th century cut lead crystal pickle jar, probably British in origin.
The pickle jar has a flattened rim that tapers in to form a short, cylindrical neck. Below this there is a rounded shoulder and a cylindrical body. The latter is cut with a lattice consisting of three rows of interlocking criss-crosses that sit on a circumferential line. Below this line is a band of fourteen vertical wedge cuts that extend down to the base. The latter is thickened and plain. It is unmarked.
The lid has a flattened polished apex, which tapers down in a mushroom form. This tapered edge is cut with a band of wedge cuts which radiate outwards from the centre. Below this the lid has a waisted portion above the ground rim.
It has a maximum height (including the lid) of approximately 13.4cm, with a diameter across the rim of about 7.0cm and across the base of about 7.8cm.
It is in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks.
