Antique glass pitcher featuring a ruffled rim and hand painting. There are swirls of white enameling along with a dotted pattern which highlights the amethyst colored flowers. You'll see the center of the pitcher has an amethyst band.
The handle is applied meaning this it was blown separately then applied to the pitcher while the glass was still hot. The top angles up to the spout and the base flairs out. We have been informed that this was made by Northwood Glass in the late 1890s.
Measuring 12 inches tall we find bubble inclusions at the base from the making. One bubble looks as it had popped which we have pictured. No actual hole there just a manufacturing flaw. A beautiful Victorian piece!
