Large Blown Clear Glass WILMONT Jar with Spout,
Circular Foot, Rough Pontil Circa 1891-1918



Lobster ova [ovum] were incubated in large glass jars known as Wilmot jars that were constantly replenished with cold salt water. Lobster was one of the first fisheries to be regulated in the new Dominion of Canada after 1867. As early as 1870, catch size and weights were being monitored and by the late 19th century there was already a concern that lobster stocks were declining in the Northumberland Straight.

In 1891 following a survey undertaken by Samuel Wilmot, Superintendent of Fish Culture, the first lobster hatchery in Canada was established at the Little Entrance of Caribou Harbor, then known as Bayview. The hatchery relied on local canneries and fishers to supply lobster eggs to incubate. With several canneries nearby including the American firm of Burnham & Morrell, the location was central to the thriving fishery.

Lobster hatching and seeding was practiced in Europe by the late 1700’s and Canadian scientists were familiar with the methods established in Norway. A hatchery in Dildo Island, Newfoundland managed by Norwegian Adolf Neilson was the model for the Bayview Hatchery. Lobster ova were incubated in large glass jars known as Wilmot jars that were constantly replenished with cold salt water.

The hatchery was a simple shed lined with rows of shelves holding Wilmot jars fed by an overhead tap lining an upper shelf. The eggs grew into larvae, which, when sufficiently developed, were released into the waters of Northumberland Straight. Several million larvae were seeded into surrounding waters every year from the Bayview hatchery. By 1894, over 12 other hatcheries were established, 8 in Nova Scotia, 2 in New Brunswick and 2 in Quebec. The hatchery operations were very successful for a time but by 1917 there was no substantive evidence that seeding lobster larvae increased lobster stocks and the hatcheries were closed.

Admiral Nelson Trafalgar Victory
Commemorative Goblet
Circa 1805 - SOLD



Blown goblet with attached foot and stem; cut and engraved decoration with gilt highlighting of a ship and the words "Nelson's Victory"; possibly decorated to commemorate Admiral Nelson's victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805; trace of gilded monogram, possibly "JEC." The goblet is in excellent condition.
With the defeat of his fleet at Trafalgar in 1805, Napoleon's hope to break the British blockade and to invade England was dashed. For England the victory came dearly, for it cost the life of the nation's greatest captain, Horatio Viscount Nelson. English merchants and manufacturer's immediately upon learning of the great victory, and the loss of the popular navel commander, began producing a variety of commemorative items. This flint goblet is an example of the type of souvenir that was marketed to a grieving, adoring public. It is somewhat unusual in that it puns the name of Nelson's flagship HMS Victory and the positive result of the Battle of Trafalgar for England. Approximately 8-inches high; diameter: 5.5-inches.
