What's for sale?

This is a handblown, green glass jug with clear glass celery handle and large, hollow, globe stopper. It's an interesting piece, handmade and with a lot of detail.

The green glass body has a dense pattern of dimples on the inside surface which catches and distorts the light beautifully. The neck has been stretched upwards and folded at the top for the spout. The short, lower body has been pinched in to form the base, where there is a rough pontil mark.

There is a ribbed, 'celery' handle in clear glass, and this has an attractive twist where it was applied to the body.

The large, hollow globe stopper has also been handblown in clear glass and a series of slice cuts has been made around it, to help with grip and match the dimples.
