(99E) English Glass Bottle with Raspberry Prunt H: 11.2 cm, D: 1690

 

This is a colorless gourd-shape flask decorated with gadrooning on the bottom and a raspberry prunt centered on each side. A similar glass vessel is in the Batchelor collection at The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge and was on display from December 2018 to March 3, 2019.

    John,

    That’s an exceptional object. The gadrooning from the double dip method and than the prunts on front and back. A real craftsman made this rather unique object. Also a kind of coincidence that the parallel is on display at the Fitzwilliam. What better reference.

    kind regards, theo
