Circa 1919, featured is Heisey Glass Company No. 4164 Gallagher jug in the popular color Alexandrite. This is a blown not pressed glass pitcher and it has a wide optic as well as a polished pontil. The jug measures approximately 8" (H), 8" (W) - from handle to tip of the lip, 6" (W) excluding the handle, 3-3/4" (W) at the foot and 4-1/4" (W) at the top opening. This jug does have some light use scratches which I assume is from stirring (imagine that) and light scratches under the foot (pretty normal considering the age), but other than that no chips or cracks. The color of this piece is amazing. The color changes from a vivid lavender to an unusual blue depending on the type of lighting. By far the best example of Dichroic glass I have seen. See photos for an example of color changes under regular vs. fluorescent lighting.
