This is an American art glass cruet with the original stopper. The date is circa 1910.
The body is amber glass. The belly is paneled. The neck is long and slender. The rim of the mouth is round. The mouth is pinched down. The handle is blue glass, applied to the body, and looks like a rope. The stopper is faceted, and sometimes called a pressed diamond. The bottom edge of the stopper is beveled.
The cruet is 7 5/8" high to the top of the stopper and 3 1/4" wide at the belly.
There is some roughness on the bottom edge of the handle, where it is applied to the body of the cruet. This can be due to the glassmaking process or perhaps a little bit of extension broke off during the years; it is common to see and not generally perceived as a flaw to the glass. There are no chips, nicks or cracks. There are a few air bubbles.
The bottom has a small pontil with some sharpness to the glass where the rod broke off. Age wear shows on the bottom. There are a few fold lines in the glass too.
