This beautiful piece of English heritage would have been produced circa 1870 (give or take 20 years) and is a fabulous, hand blown pitcher in clear glass, which has been decorated with a fern cutting. Fern cuttings such as this were popular on glassware in this time period. The Victorians had Fern-Fever or Pteridomania, and it featured predominantly in Victorian art work from the 1850s through until the 1880s, though somewhat as early as the 1830s.
This piece is a wonderful pitcher which would be perfect for milk or juice, or perhaps even an evening cocktail. It measures 7 3/4" in height and 5" in diameter.
In very good condition it has some light wear from age but no chips, nicks or cracks at all.
