ITEM JNH15. BLOWN THREE MOLD PITCHER, (McK# GII-25), clear flint or soda lime glass, body formed from a quart-sized decanter mold, hand tooled pour spout, applied solid glass handle with medial rib, pontil scar, 5 3/4"H, tooled rim, mint. American, probably blown at a Midwestern Glass House, 1820-1840, extremely rare, probably unique. Ex. George McKearin Collection, ex. Wayne Ayers Collection, ex. Charles G. Moore Collection.

Ostensibly purchased for "resale" a number of years ago, neither Holly nor I have had the heart to actually put a price tag on this piece until now. It is believed that this is THE GII-25 pitcher noted in McKearin's charts, as no other example has come to light. The pitcher has impeccable provenance, having been included in numerous major collections. The pitcher's bubbly texture, fancy handle treatment and overall form are all reflective of the work done by Midwestern Glassblowers and the piece has always been ascribed to that region.
