Ewer and Stopper
The plain clear glass ewer is of inverted cone shaped form, with very curved shoulders, a long neck, a wide lip of trefoil shape and a high reeded handle. The whole is supported on a foot, which is cased in clear red glass partly cut away in a star; a small knop joins this to the body. The whole is fitted with a high spiked cut glass stopper (not original). The ewer is lightly engraved with lines of leaves on the neck and with stylized flower and leaf shapes on a line of dots and scrolls.
To match goblet G.458.
