BRIGHT AMBER NEW JERSEY BLOWN GLASS PITCHER WITH THUMB REST

ITEM 6145. BLOWN GLASS PITCHER, brilliant orange amber, cylindrical with stove-pipe neck, simulated threading and applied solid glass handle with thumb rest, pontil scar, 6 ¼"H, sheared and tooled mouth with pour spout, mint. American, probably blown at a New Jersey Glass House, possibly the work of Joel Duffield, C.1840, rare.

Distinguished by a handle reminiscent of 18th century construction, this exemplary pitcher is obviously the work of a master gaffer with an eye for quality and traditional design. The pitcher is blown from a crude gather of brilliant orange amber bottle glass and formed to perfection. And, with its bold proportions and clean lines, the piece would stand tall in any collection of early glass or period decorative arts.
