Pomona glass was patented by Joseph Locke at the New England Glass Co. in 1885 in the "first grind" process and he developed the "second grind" process a year later in 1886 as a less expensive method of producing this popular glass. About the same time an unknown Midwestern glass company created glass very similar to the Pomona glass being made by the New England Glass Co. but it had a smooth, frosted surface which lacked the texture of the glass patented by Locke.
This lovely "Midwestern Pomona" pitcher has a rounded body, inverted thumbprint pattern with square top and applied reeded handle decorated with an amber metallic stain and polished pontil. The pitcher measures 8 1/2" in height, 7 1/2" from spout-to-handle and 3 3/4" across the base. There are no chips, cracks or repairs; there is loss to the stained area and some wear to the frosted body.
