One of the elegant glass manufacturers, Dunbar, I believe, of the Depression Era - 1920's - 30's - produced this gorgeous covered etched green and pink iced tea/lemonade pitcher -- the color combination sometimes referred to as 'watermelon'. The entire pitcher sparkles with the diamond optic glass which I hope I have captured in the photos. An etched six-petal flower and vine spray repeats 3 times around the pitcher with a border above it of etched dots. Just lovely!

The pitcher has no chips, cracks, fleabites, T are a few bubbles in the glass, a few faint rub marks at the shoulder and one 1" light scratch on one of the bubbled out rows near the handle. T is no cloudiness or residue. It measures 10-1/2" high with the cover on and is 4-3/4" in diameter at the mouth. It has 3 rounded out rows at the shoulders and 3 at the base. The cover has no chips or cracks, but t are a couple spots of roughness on the outer moldline. Both pieces have bubbles in the glass. The green glass glows brilliantly under the blacklight.
