ANTIQUE AMETHYST HANDBLOWN GLASS PITCHER -VERY PRETTY
- Source: eBay
You are bidding on a lovely antique amethyst handblown glass pitcher. You can easily see the bubbles in this- characteristic of blown glass - as well as w the stem was broken off on the bottom of the pitcher (this is called the cherry). The pitcher is 5" tall and has a base and diameter of about 3 3/4" excluding the handle. The handle is what I believe is called an "applied handle" and t is one small rough spot at the bottom w it was attached. You can see clear bubbles in the glass as well as a light colored one-- all of which are within the glass and part of the hand blown process.
This vintage piece came from an Atlanta Georgia estate and is in very good condition considering its age. T is some indication of use near the inside spout, but overall a very attractive example of antique amethyst handblown glass.
