This offering is for a beautiful vintage hand blown CRANBERRY GLASS VASE by the PILGRIM GLASS Corporation of West Virginia, circa 1980s. The optic stripes in the vase's design are accented with an applied rigaree collar encircling the neck. The rigaree is delicately twisted and is also cranberry glass.

The flower vase stands nearly 6” tall and the rim is 2 ½”" wide. The pontil is inset and polished. The vase is in wonderful condition and has no chips, cracks or repairs.  Would make a great addition to anyone's cranberry or vintage glass collection.

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.
