About this object

A glacier in solid blue jasper with white jasper sprigging resembling floral designs and icicles. Sprigging is the name given to decoration that is formed in a mould and then applied. Glaciers were used to serve ice cream with compartments above and below which could be filled with ice. The handle is a little boy wrapped in a blanket trying to keep warm. One of a pair with LL 1371.
