Offering a vintage hand-blown cranberry glass pitcher made by PILGRIM GLASS of West Virginia. The circa 1976 - 2001 piece is part of the Atlanta Collection and is designed using the "optic swirl" and shaped like a tiny CLARET JUG. The pitcher has an applied crystal handle.

Measuring 4 ½” tall and about 2 ½” wide at the widest point, not including the handle, the pitcher will hold about 4 ounces of liquid. There is a pontil scar on the bottom of the pitcher; excellent condition and has no chips, cracks or repairs.

Would be a wonderful edition to any collector's Pilgrim Glass 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.
