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


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

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.

Make-do Goblet with Mining Scenes, Fine and Rare
Nuremberg, 1680 to 1700
An early superbly engraved masterpiece of glass blowing with history - SOLD


Antique Make-do Goblet with Mining Scenes, Nuremberg, 1680 to 1700, entire view

This early blown wineglass suffered the loss of its foot which was replaced with a silver substitute. The wine itself is a superb example of late seventeenth century blown and engraved glass from Nuremberg. The piece features three hollow knops each separated by three wafers, and a generous bowl engraved with open pit mining scenes. A coat of arms is engraved in the front and is believed to be the arms of one of the Counts of Mansfeld. The foot is hand hammered silver and bears the name Mansfeld and the date 1530. (Also, in tiny font, “A.E. 12”) The foot was likely made during the late 18th or early 19th century. Mansfeld Germany was noted for copper and silver mining for 800 years; Kupferschiefer was the principle mineral; the ore was reached via open mine shafts as depicted on the bowl. This 10.5-inch goblet was likely made to commemorate the successful mining endeavors of one of the Mansfeld families. Fine condition.
