I picked this up at an estate sale recently. I can't say I've seen something this fancy with this much age outside some of the cathedral pickles.

I haven't been able to find much out about it stateside, other then that this company had a long history and that there is an unmarked cobalt version out there (maybe as an export to Austailia?). Hoping that someone across the pond can give me more info (age, scarcity, value, etc).

First one I have ever seen.

Not one I’ve seen either. It sure is nice. How tall is it?

We see these occasionally here in South Australia in the 1870 - 1880 period. The cobalt ones are very rare and seem to be for table use as they have a clear glass stopper and have never seen a dug one.
