Whitefriars Glass Ruby Sparrow Beak Jug No. 9649
For a full product description, see below.
This is a highly attractive example of a mid-20th century British art glass jug by Whitefriars.
The jug is made from ruby glass and has an angular body that tapers down towards the flattened base. The latter has a broad polished pontil mark. The upper part of the body tapers in towards the cylindrical neck. The rim is angular, drawn out to form a tapering spout. The handle is made from flint glass in a ribbed ‘celery stalk’ form, arising from an attachment opposite the spout and widening out as it approaches the lower attachment on the body. The base is plain with a central polished pontil.
This jug has the pattern number 9649 and can be seen on page 8 of the 1966 Whitefriars catalogue.
It has a maximum height to the spout of approximately 11.2cm, with a diameter across the rim of about 3.9cm and across the base of about 3.3cm.
It is in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks, although there is a linear ridge at the rim which is a tool mark from the manufacturing process.
