1890’s Campbeltown Scotland Ground Glass Victorian Souvenir Pontil Jug
A Victorian hand blown and decorated pontil souvenir jug for Cambeltown, Scotland.
Campbeltown is a town and former royal burgh in Argyll and Bute, Scotland on the Kintyre peninsula. It was originally known as Kinlochkilkerran as per wiki, and was renamed in the 1600's as Campbell's Town after Archibald Campbell was granted the town in 1667.
This jug (or small pitcher) exhibits extensive ground work and an glass pontil base. It has handwritten or scribed "A present from Campbeltown" across front in gold lustre. That text is hard to see, as it is clear and was executed in very fine old handwritten script.
Just a great old original souvenir piece. Condition is clean and original, no cracks or repairs. Just as seen in pics.
Size: 3.50 x 4 inches including handle
