PILLAR MOLDED PITTSBURGH PITCHER

 

ITEM 6982. PILLAR MOLDED PITCHER, colorless, 8 vertical ribs, sack-shaped body with applied solid glass handle and fancy rigaree treatment, ground pontil scar, 9 ¼"H, a mint piece of tableware exhibiting the expected usage wear. Probably blown at a Pittsburgh Glass House, 1840-1870.

Unusual in that the ribs are flattened rather than rounded, this appealing pitcher is blown from a particularly substantial gather of glass and the result is an object with good heft and presence. The glassblower's skill is evidenced by the decorative flourish in creating the fancy rigaree at the base of the handle.

SOLD!
