||Silver mounted crystal designed for Tiffany & Co., by George Farnham, America, 1904. The overall shape, the silver mounts and the designs carved into the crystal are inspired from the Renaissance, an influence that Farnham kept returning to throughout his career. Only lead oxide from the Harz Mountains in Germany and silica found in the forests of Fontainebleu, France, were considered of sufficient purity for these objects. The resulting glass was whiter in color and more brillant than domestic lead glass. Though the Jug was published in 1906 in "Studio International", a contemporary art design magazine of the period, the pattern number stamped on the inside rim, 16191-1780 dates the piece between January 1, 1904 and December 31, 1904.

In one single piece, it manages to incorporate two things he spent much of his life striving to perfect - the Oriental rich red Sang de Boeuf glaze and a deep, almost cobalt blue glow 'cracked ice' glaze. The silver mounts are by Francis Arthur Edwards who worked with Bernard Moore at the Guild. Ht. 12-3/4".|

This style was popular from about 1830 onwards and was the artistic 'antidote' to the more formal and rigid "Pompeian grandeur" of the Neoclassical Revival period that preceded it.

It is contained in its original leather case stamped with the retailer's mark of Clark, 20 Old Bond Street. The lid of the Jug is also encraved with the retailer's mark and the address. Provenance: The Princess of Wales, wife of the future King Edward VII, presented this decanter to Francis Lakin, Royal Physician to Queen Victoria, Edward VII and George V, for Christmas 1882 as a token of thanks for the many medical services he had rendered to the Royal Family over the years. Francis Lakin was present on a panel of physicians when Edward VII underwent an operation for appendicitis, then a very new surgical intervention. The jug was later handed down through the Lakin family to his Granddaughter, who in 1940 bequeathed it to her friend, Mrs. Zoe Taylor, who was a very close friend of General Smuts.

Ht: 16 1/4". According to Samuel J. Hough, this jug was one of the centerpieces of Gorham's display at the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Made specifically for the Fair, it was finished June 1, 1893. The piece required 125 hours of fabrication and 300 hours of chasing. The piece was then sent to New York for setting the stones and enameling. The enamel, both the decorative grounds and the Venus panels, was executed by the Hungarian artist, G. DeFestetics, who spent over 378 hours at a cost of $350.00. Many of Gorham's offerings in 1893 were designed by William C. Codman, such as the Nautilus centerpiece. Although Codman's name cannot be tied directly to this jug, its feel is similar to the Designer's work at this period. Gorham's enamel work was a success at the 1893 Exposition, and the company received seven awards for this technique alone. A pamphlet published by the Firm in 1894 about its display records that "it is scarcely a year since the Gorham Company commenced the production of translucent enamels, yet this work is of such a high order that one of the German Commissioners at the Fair has purchased a specimen of it...to be placed in the Royal Kunstgewerbe Museum of Berlin." Gorham's records reveal that the Company was prepared to take only $44.00 profit on this piece which had cost $800.00 to manufacture for exhibition purposes, immediate financial gain was secondary to art and recognition.|
