Handled jug.
For making a quart jug of four pounds weight or more, it is necessary to gather a ball of solid glass of eight or sixteen ounces weight, as A. When it has cooled sufficiently, (technically called chilled,) the full quantity may be obtained by the second dip or gathering, which has to be marvered and blown as B; and, after swinging, re-warming, and shaping with the battledore, the form somewhat approximates its ultimate shape, C. The foot is then added and opened, as D; the punty iron is next stuck to the middle of the foot, and the mouth rewarmed and sheared, as E.
