Heavy flint glass water pitcher in the bellflower pattern, double-vine version. This pattern consists of a fine ribbed background with trailing vines of bellflowers and leafs.
Made by a number of companies in the mid-nineteenth century, in a number of variations. Amazingly, this pitcher has survived without any crack or heat-check in the handle (which seem to occur in the majority of these early pieces with applied handles).
Certainly a scarce item for the collector of flint pattern glass.

Size: Approximately 9.5" high at handle.

Condition: Excellent "Rough patch" on the side near bottom edge (appears to be a manufacturing defect. Some slight clouding. No other chips, cracks or repairs.

Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
