Late 18th / Early 19th century pair of English covered blown-glass jars. Superb, clear-glassed urn-shaped jars and raised lids with hollow-glassed acorn finials. Since the jars are hand-blown, they are not an identical pair, but instead take on a beautiful, slightly irregular form, with one jar being marginally larger than the other. The lids are not interchangeable. There is a rough pontil scar underneath both the acorn-shaped finials and the pedestal bases. There are visible striations and the odd glass inclusion. Clean and superb condition with one small chip on the inner lid rim of one jar, as shown and very minor scratches in a few places.
Size #1 – 15” height to tip of lid finial. Rim diameter is 5 ¼”. Size #2 – 14 ½” height to tip of lid finial. Rim diameter is 5”.
