Signed Smith Brothers Glass / Mt Washington Art Glass Melon Ribbed Biscuit Jar

Signed Smith Brothers Glass / Mt Washington Art Glass Melon Ribbed Biscuit Jar
A spectacular Mt Washington / Smith Brothers melon ribbed art glass biscuit jar, circa 1880 to 1900 and signed with the Smith Brothers Trademark rampant lion in shield mark. The mold-blown jar is made with an opal milk-white glass that is then brought to its full glory with a flat satin finish and hand-painted with pink roses, front and back.

The jar stands 5-1/2" high to the rim that measures 4-3/4" in diameter. The inner edge of the rim is unpolished and somewhat rough, and I speculate this is as it was made, as it is uniformly rough all the way around.

This signed Smith Bros. art glass biscuit jar is a true beauty and a treasure for any collection. For the serious collector who enjoys the challenge of a hunt, the missing lid provides an opportunity to acquire an investment piece at a reasonable price.
