ITEM 6710. PATTERN MOLDED CREAMER, clear flint glass, 15 vertical ribs, barrel shaped with applied solid glass handle, pontil scar, 5 7/8"H, tooled rim with pour spout, mint. Blown at a Pittsburgh Glass House, C. 1820.

This beautifully rendered lead glass creamer would have originally adorned a Sheraton table in the dining room of a well-to-do Pittsburgh family. Nationalistic sentiment reached fevered heights after the War of 1812 and the presence of refined local glass on the table was considered not only as a sign of good taste but also a reflection of the owner's devotion to American Industry. Lowell Iness pictures a nearly identical creamer in Plate 162 of "Pittsburgh Glass."
