A fabulous late 18th century English hand-blown, colorless lead glass, or crystal, three-piece butter cooler, or tub. The cylindrical-form tub, with gallery rim, sits on a graceful ogee-form stand and has its original deeply-domed cover with applied facet-cut finial. Both stand and tub bases have a polished pontil mark. Just a simple, yet extraordinarily beautiful, form! A similar example can be found on page 22 of 'Miller's Glass Buyer's Guide'.

This handsome piece stands 6" high overall, the stand measures 7 1/2" in diameter. All three pieces are in very, very good undamaged condition. There are no chips, cracks or regrinds. Both tub and stand show appropriate age-related scuffing on the underside. The glass 'rings like a bell' when tapped. So rare to find all three pieces and especially in such exceptional condition.
