Hand-Blown Vintage Glass Blue Topaz Jug
Large hand-blown vintage glass cruet in canary yellow and blue.
Hand-blown vintage glass table cruet by Tiffin Art Glass or Steuben Glass, both U.S. companies. Tiffin is no longer in business (see more info link below). Steuben, established in 1906, continues to provide quality colorless glass to this day, although I suspect it is produced offshore.
This beautiful oversize cruet was made in the 1930’s to 1940’s. Both Tiffin and Steuben offered the blue and yellow (also called Topaz) color combination during this time period.
Suspect it is by Steuben. Research uncovered the pinched rounded square vessel as Steuben, but the stopper was in canary with applied blue decor that’s used with Steuben’s Venetian line. The stopper on this bottle is in topaz only with an interior bubble. Although Tiffin made many tableware forms in canary and blue, we did not find a Tiffin form that matched this.
The stopper is original and fits perfect. The pontil scar was polished to half moon. For large thumbprint dents accomplishe dby hand tool. Hand-blown vintage glass with applied handle.
Larger than a standard cruet, measuring 8″ tall with a 3.5″ squarish base. No damage, no water staining. Light bottom wear on the seat from over 80 years of surface contact. Perfect for table or bar.
