ITEM 8009. BLOWN THREE MOLD PITCHER, (McK# GV-3), clear, scalloped base with drawn body, simulated neck threading and applied solid glass handle with two crimps, pontil scar, 5 ¼"H, tooled mouth with pour spout, about mint (some base edge roughness and a minor bruise on the side of the lower handle attachment. Both are manufacture related issues.) American, 1820-1840, unique handle treatment. Ex. Louis G. Meyers and Alfred B. Maclay Collections.

The handle treatment of this iconic blown three mold pitcher is described by Helen McKearin in the Maclay catalog as "unique" and in the 70 years since that sale, no other example has come to light. The noted manufacture flaws are minor and the piece displays as mint.
