Superb Early American Pitcher!

$3,875.00

Here is a fine example of an Early American pitcher with a very primitive look! I have seen these pitchers in 4 sizes, this being the 2nd to the largest size. It stands roughly 7 5/8″ tall. These have been attributed to Cleveland, NY, but similar styles were produced in other NY factories, as well as in MA, VT, and NH. 1830-40s. This one was blown in a rough dip mold (for base size), then all gaffer… manipulated pour spout, threading, and a huge strap handle! These handles are quite awesome… certainly made to be used! Handle is wide, ribbed, and the terminal folds over itself perfectly. No heat checks, lines, or issues whatsoever. These have a super primitive look, and they are quite difficult to find in such great condition! Good base wear, as expected from use, otherwise a particularly fine example!!
