This rare early 19th century blown covered footed jar depicts an extraordinary hand cut or etched whaling scene including a tall whaling ship, and a spouting whale being pursued by two smaller whaling boats, which extends completely around the jar. The knopped cover shows small star and dot etched decoration in between two thin lines or rings around the cover. The jar is in excellent overall condition, with minor imperfections and light surface wear from age and use. Dimensions: 14 ¾” h overall with a 6 ¼” diameter cover and a 5 ¼” diameter base.
Featuring period furniture, fine art, quality porcelain, silver and decorative accessories.
