Offering a vintage hand-blown cranberry glass pitcher made by PILGRIM GLASS of West Virginia. The pitcher is in the Bennington pattern, one of the company's specialty patterns in the late 1970s. The pattern with its raised diamonds, swirls and flower motifs was designed to resemble New England's early 19th century Sandwich Glass.

The color is a lighter cranberry--somewhat a rose cranberry. Under the clear crystal applied handle are two small curls. There is a pontil scar on the bottom of the pitcher. Measuring 4 ⅜” tall and about 2 ⅞” wide at the widest point, not including the handle, the pitcher will hold about 7 ounces of liquid.

The piece is in great condition and has no chips, cracks or repairs. Would be a wonderful edition to any collector's Pilgrim or cranberry glass collection---or for someone who is not a collector of glass, perfect for their morning cream.

History of Pilgrim Cranberry Glass: Pilgrim Glass Corporation, founded in 1956 by Alfred Knobler in Ceredo, West Virginia, initially created crackle glass and art glass similar to Blenko. However, the company made its mark in the glass industry in 1968 when it developed some of the world's most beautiful colored glass, Pilgrim Cranberry Glass. Due to the intensity of the process, production of the hand-blown cranberry glass was challenging; it was labor-intensive and difficult to attain the deep cranberry hue, as gold chloride was added to the molten glass during the creation process. This process necessitated the involvement of several glass workers per product.
