Beautiful and unusual purple coloured or "Amethyst" Mary Gregory glass-This is unusual as it still has the pontil scar from where it was broken from the pontil or punt which indicates it was hand blown-Making this a rarity as no glass is every handblown exactly the same no matter how amazing the glass artist is.
Amethyst glass as well as Antique Mary Gregory glass is quite rare making this 3 for 3 in the rarity department.


**Who is Mary Gregory-You may ask?**

Mary Gregory's tale was one told for many years in the Antiques business & many still believe. In the tale told for many years Gregory focused her works on children because she never married or bore any children & needed an outlet for her Motherly tenderness. Her handiwork appeared on so many pieces of glass, This remarkable story seemed simply amazing.
Well like many colourful legends concocted in the antiques business this incredible story turned out to be no more than a myth.

The name has stuck and even though Miss Gregory didn't hand enamel this or any other item of glassware doesn't make this worth any less in fact the myth & the truth behind it has just made these works more sought after. In fact people now call this type of glassware "Mary Gregory glass" or "Mary Gregory Style" as this is what people who collect it have come to it by.
