This is a hand painted, frosted glass, ice-lip tilt ball pitcher from Anchor Hocking. These were very popular in the 40's and 50's and were purchased by decorating companies such as Gay Fad Studios and hand painted with a variety of fruit and other scenes. This pitcher stands over 7" tall and the globe body is approximately 6 1/2" in diameter. The handle is deeply grooved for good gripping. The paint is in good shape. On the ice-lip there are five lines in the glass that almost look like cracks but do not go through the glass, perhaps some sort of factory flaw, frankly I did not notice them until I was listing the piece.
As always, all reasonable offers are welcomed and considered.
Enjoy each day!
