A beautiful blue opalescent footed salver in the Tokyo pattern by Jefferson Glass, a gorgeous antique piece of glass that I have seen referred to as a card receiver, compote, tidbit tray, and even a donut plate. However, an old advertisement for Jefferson's "Best" and ever-popular opalescent assortment lists this treasure as a 6-5/8" high footed salver.The Tokyo pattern is one that causes a bit of confusion for some, given one book's vague reference to potential reproduct..

A wonderful large English earthenware pitcher or jug, likely from the Staffordshire region, with an unusual decorative mix. Around the body of the jug is a raised rope design forming four 6-sided polygon frames, three of which have brown transferware images of what I speculate are English warriors, each image having a golden luster finish.

A gorgeous crystal art glass cordial liquor decanter with rich red enameled grape vines, all hand-painted and trimmed in gold around the decanter's teardrop belly. The short tapered foot, spout rim, bubble stopper, and handle all have a gilt trim, with both ends of the applied handle adorned by a trefoil leaf.
Standing 9" high to the stopper top, I'm uncertain as to whether this decanter would have been used for dessert wine, as a vinegar cruet, or simply for display.

(see photo). But then I started reading the "Proper Use" insert. The first sentence caught me by sur..
