Offered here is a fabulous Pink Depression Glass Wheel Cut Water Pitcher made by Dunbar Flint Glass Corporation. The top two-thirds of this stately jug is smooth with a wheel cut design of a four-petaled half flower with a pair of leaves on a thin stem. The design winds around the pitcher and is repeated in three places. The bottom of the pitcher is rippled with four concentric rings, as though the glass is as fluid as the liquid it contains. The applied handle has a wonderful weight and feel, and the narrow rim dips into a small pouring spout. The color is the wonderful pink of the era.
This beautiful pitcher measures 7-3/4 inches tall and 4-1/2 inches in diameter. It is 7-inches across the handle and spout.
Made by Dunbar Glass and shown in a 1929 catalog reprint in Hazel Marie Weatherman's Colored Glassware of the Depression Era Book 2, there is no mark on this pitcher.
There are tiny manufacturing bubbles in the glass. There is wear on the bottom consistent with use, and a few negligible surface scratches, but there are no chips or cracks in this lovely old piece.
