Swirls of Preserves


Edwardian English Jam Pot with Swirling Glass Body and Silver-Plated Mountings (LEO Design)


The swirling diagonal ribs on this Edwardian English glass jam pot provide high-texture, movement and great visual interest—especially once the alluring color of the obscured jam shows through the ribbed swirls.  Handsome and heavy, the pot is finished with silver-plated mountings, including a lid embellished with an engraved wreath of grape leaves and vines.  Jam—often homemade—commonly would be served in a vessel like this.  One could use the jam pot as intended today or find another clever use for the jar: sugar, bath salts, cotton swabs or a collection of marbles.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
