This 9 1/2" high clear glass pitcher is heavy; the people using these in the late 1800's must have been strong (or the servants were). This is 6" across at the widest point on the base. This was blown into a mold, so has both the "twist" on the bottom and the mold lines on front and back. There is a "straw line" on the handle; this is free of any damage. The brilliantly reflective design looks like a swirling comet. I will combine multiple orders to save on shipping, where possible. Please email me with any questions you may have, and thank-you for shopping here at Something Wonderful.
