Shown is a sparkling clear cut glass pitcher of the American Brilliant Period (ABP), ca. 1876 - 1905. It has an applied blown handle with six cut thumb print notches, attached to a crystal clear, thickly blown body with a 16 star rayed base. There are five notched flutes at the lip and a cut sawtooth rim. Measuring 7-3/4" tall and 7-3/4" wide from spout to handle, the heavy 5-1/4 pound pitcher's main motif on either side is an elongated eight-point star with cross hatch filling in the points and a Middlesex hobstar center. These alternate with three 1-1/4" wide cross hatched columns with fans top and bottom. I have looked carefully, but can find no signature, nor can I find any damage other than a couple of flea bites (seen under a loupe) and a good bit of intermittent wear on the underside. I do not know the name of the pattern, but it is a masterpiece in cut work, and has been in my family for decades. It would be a lovely addition to your collection. Thank you for stopping by
