This listing is for an exquisite example of very early cut glass / crystal. I do not say this casually. This Jug / Pitcher is spectacular. The handle has a beautiful notched pattern. Base is cut into a fully extended star.
American Brilliant Period / Cut Glass / Crystal
Pitcher / Jug
Dates circa 1890’s.
The pattern is RARE. It is the Persian version of the Russian Pattern. This pattern is featured over and over again in the book "Rarities in American Cut Glass" by Wiener and Lipkowitz.
HAND BLOWN, WHEEL CUT, HAND POLISHED
It measures 5 7/8” tall to the top of the spout and 6 1/4" wide including the spout.
Condition: Glass is a brilliant crystal clear. It is in excellent antique condition. There are the expected very tiny pin pricks here and there. Any white in the photos is from my camera flash. Remember that you are looking at vintage item that was used. Please examine the photos very carefully to add to my description. Ask all needed questions before purchase.
PHOTOS DO NOT DO JUSTICE TO THEIR BEAUTY.
